Assessing Creativity
Brookhart, Susan M.
Educational Leadership, v70 n5 p28-34 Feb 2013
Creativity is a simple concept that can be difficult to get one's head around. In its most basic sense, creative means "original and of high quality." Probably the foremost characteristic of creative students is that they put things together in new ways. Teachers can assess creativity at every grade level and in every subject, using both basic and complex student work. Think through an example of an assignment a teachers might give in the grade level and subject they teach. How will this feedback help students grow more creative? And how will one assess their progress? This article offers ways to assess and give feedback about creativity and, in the process, help students become more creative in their work.
