This task group report is one of a series prepared by eminent psychologists who have served as consultants in the U.S. Office of Education-sponsored grant study to conduct a Critical Appraisal of the Personality-Emotion-motivation Domain. In order to achieve the goal of identifying important problems and areas for new research and methodological issues related to them, the task force followed an approach in which leading investigators in specialized areas were enlisted as members of task groups and asked to reflect on their current knowledge of ongoing research and to identify the research needs in their respective areas. The articles in this report include: (1) Creativity: An Overview (Torrance); (2) Conceptualization of Creativity: Relations to Intelligence and Personality Factors (Gowan); (3) Creative Process (Phillips); (4) Characteristics of the Creative Product (Davis); (5) Characteristics of the Creative Situation-Short and Long Term Situational Factors Contributing to Creative Performance (Aliotti); and (6) The Assessment of Creativity (Treffinger).
