A Three-Year Study of Continuity of Creative Growth under a Cognitive-Structured Approach to Educational Stimulation.
Torrance, E. Paul; Phillips, Victor K.
Tasks from the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking were administered to children in a cognitive-structured preprimary program. Results indicated that children entering as 5-year-olds showed a continuity of creative growth and excelled their controls on elaboration at the beginning of grade 1 and end of grade 2. Also, at the end of grade 2, they excelled their controls on verbal originality. Children entering as 4-year-olds also showed continuity of creative growth while in the preprimary program but tended to slump in figural originality and elaboration while in grade 1. (Author/JD)
