Relationship between Teachers' Divergent Thinking Abilities and Their Ratings of Pupils' Creative Thinking Abilities
Treffinger, Donald J.; And Others
Meas Evaluation Guidance, 3, 3, 169-175, F '70
Teachers and pupils were administered the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. Each teacher rated his pupils' creative thinking ability, using a five category, forced normal distribution procedure. Teacher ratings correlated no higher, and often significantly lower, with pupils' Torrance test scores than with their IQ scores, regardless of whtether teachers were high or low on divergent thinking. Implications concerning validity of ratings by untrained raters are discussed. (Author)
