Theoretical Formulation and Empirical Validation of a Construct of Creativity.
Haladyna, Thomas
Creativity has been conceptualized as either cognitive or affective, and an analysis of research has indicated that these two approaches are incompatible. In this study, a rapprochement was attempted between two theoretical approaches using procedures recommended by Cronbach and Meehl (1955). First, a construct of creativity was formulated, then measures were explicated, and finally, a construct validation of these measures was attempted. Results indicated two possible construct reformulations, a one-factor versus a three factor interpretation. To resolve this dilemma, more universally accepted criterion measures appear to have the most promise for accurately identifying creative talent. (Author)
