Investigating the Competence of Classroom Teachers in Terms of Nominating the Students with High Creativity and Gender-Biased Decisions
Sahin, Feyzullah
International Journal of Progressive Education, v12 n3 p110-120 Oct 2016
The main purpose of this study was to analyse the classroom teachers' competence in identifying above-average creative students, and their gender-bias during the identification process. A descriptive survey model was employed as a research method. A total of 317 elementary school students took part in this study. As data collecting tools, a teacher observation form, the creativity scale, and the Torrance Thinking Creativity Test were used. The results of the study enabled the determination of a teacher rating scale that helped the teachers categorize their students more clearly and differentiate them in such a way as to enable gender-bias to be reduced when compared to the teacher's opinion method.
