The Relation Between Students' Convergent and Divergent Abilities, Their Academic Performance, and School-Related Affective Characteristics
Marjoribanks, Kevin
Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 15, 3, 197-207, May 78
Classifies 12-year-old schoolchildren as either convergers (those who excel on conventional tests but do poorly on open-ended tests), divergers (those who excel on open-ended tests but do poorly on intelligence tests), or all-rounders (those who are equally good or bad on all tests) and searches for correlates with academic achievement, and attitudes toward school-related topics. Complex interrelationships are found. (CP)
