Treffinger, Donald J.
This guide contains 12 practical tools to help educators link instruction in Creative Problem Solving (CPS) with today's focus on authentic assessment. It offers a variety of practical, reproducible instruments and checklists for use in evaluating students' knowledge of CPS concepts and tools, assessing students' attitudes about CPS and their self-concept as creative problem solvers, and assessing and documenting the effectiveness or impact of instructional or training programs in CPS. The book includes resources for use by teachers, group facilitators, and parents to document a wide range of CPS skills and applications. It also includes resources that can be used before, during, or after any CPS application to help verify and document the outcomes or results of the application. The book presents each resource, including a detailed description, directions for use, and where appropriate, scoring information. An appendix includes scoring keys. (Contains 13 references.) (CR)
