Creativity and Achievement in Speech.
Rossiter, Charles M., Jr.
Today's Speech, v18 n3 p15-17 Sum 1970
The purposes of this study were to determine if there is any relationship between: (1) students' creative thinking ability and their achievement in the basic college course in public speaking, and (2) teachers' estimates of creative thinking ability when compared to students' scores on a standardized creative thinking test. Subjects were 140 undergraduates in the course; all were given the AC Test of Creative Ability. Quantity scores were computed and constituted the variable, "creative thinking ability." Instructors were then asked to rank their students according to their grades; these ranks constituted the variable, "achievement in speech." Data analysis was performed. No significant relationships were found. (CK)
