Creativity, Extracurricular Activity, and Divergent Thinking as Predictors of Mathematics and Science Performance by Talented Adolescents.
Runco, Mark A.; And Others
This study examined four measures of creativity as predictors of mathematics and science performance in a program for talented high school students (N=29). Correlational analyses indicated that the How Do You Think Test (HDYT) and ratings on the Teachers' Evaluation of Students' Creativity (TESC) were predictive of the students' performance in the Student Science Training Program (SSTP) at the University of Hawaii. Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test in Mathematics (PSAT-M) scores were also positively correlated with participants' performance. Additionally, scores from the HDYT test were significantly different in high- and low-performance groups even after controlling for differences in PSAT-M scores. These findings suggest that the HDYT test be used in the selection of participants for this program. (Author/MNS)
