Responses of African-American Students on the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (Figural).
Sikka, Anjoo
Sixty fourth, fifth, and sixth grade African American students (37 males and 23 females) at a public school in northeast Mississippi were administered the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking--Figural Form A (TTCT). Subjects were from 9 to 13 years old. The TTCT consists of 3 subtests: (1) picture construction (1 stimulus); (2) picture completion (10 stimuli); and (3) lines (30 stimuli). Data analysis revealed a below average standard score for creative thinking abilities and standard score average. Creative strengths were found in the areas of unusual visualization, emotional expressiveness, and expressiveness of titles. Individual responses were categorized into relevant responses, irrelevant responses, and no responses. On an average, 17 responses were not attempted in the last activity, the lines test. Possible explanations for these results are presented. Four tables are included. (Author/RLC)
