Teacher Behavior Related to Pupil Creativity and Assessment Strategem.
Rookey, Thomas J.; Reardon, Francis J.
In this study, the evaluation of pupil creativity was partitioned into affective and cognitive components while teacher behavior was divided into classroom practices and teacher attitude. Nine hundred and forty-five fifth grade pupils from a small city district were studied for one year. The teacher attitude measure did not relate to creative ability and only unidirectionally to creative attitude. The teacher's classroom practices related to creative ability but not creative attitude. The interrelationships suggest the multidimensional nature of creativity assessment in the classroom setting.
