Learning Disabled College Students' Figural Problem Solving Skills.
Gregg, Noel; Hoy, Cheri
Performance of 25 learning disabled (LD) and 25 normally achieving college students on the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (Figural) was compared. Group mean scores were analyzed using a t-test. Group mean Figural Creativity Index Scores were significantly higher for the LD students than the normally achieving students. Subtest score analysis revealed that LD subjects scored significantly higher than the normals in elaboration, resistance to premature closure, and mean bonus points. No significant group differences were found on fluency, originality, and abstractness of title scores. Results indicated the need to include assessments of divergent thinking and creative problem solving in diagnostic assessments of LD college students. (CL)
