A Cross-Cultural Study in Creativity, Israeli and American Students, Grades 9 through 12.
Rabinsky, Leatrice B.; Kumar, V. K.
Differences between 50 Israeli and 87 American students in grades 9 through 12 were investigated using the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking-Figural Form A. Results showed that Israeli students scored higher than the American students in grades 9, 10 and 12 on fluency and flexibility. Israeli students scored higher on originality only in grade 10, while American students scored higher on elaboration only in grade 11. A quadratic trend was observed for fluency, flexibility, and elaboration across grade levels over both cultures, showing higher scores in grades 10 and 11 as opposed to grades 9 and 12. (Author/RD)
