Glover, John A. – 1976
This paper reviews earlier experiments in fostering creative expression in the writing of students at all educational levels, and presents an abstract of an experiment involving 81 students of educational psychology at Tennessee State University. Each wrote one essay per week, which was then rated for creativity on four scales (fluency,…

Glover, John A. – Small Group Behavior, 1979
Compares the relative levels of creative behavior emitted in (1) noncontingent reinforcement, noncompetitive, nonevaluative, self-organized groups (laissez-faire); (2) groups with evaluation, competition, and individual reinforcement contingencies; and (3) groups with evaluation, competition, and group-shared contingencies of reinforcement.…

Glover, John A. – Social Behavior and Personality, 1977
To test the relationship between risk-taking and creativity, 10 groups of four undergraduates were administered the Choice Dilemma Questionnaire and a subtest of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. This was followed by the standard group process noted to result in a risky shift, and then by post-testing. (Author)

Glover, John A. – Educational Research Quarterly, 1981
The efficacy of an applied behavior analysis model for enhancing creativity is reported. The model was implemented through teacher inservice training. Results indicate the positive effects at a much more time- and resource-economical level than methods previously demonstrated. (Author/GK)

Glover, John A. – Small Group Behavior, 1981
Investigates the effectiveness of a creativity training workshop. Results indicate training for creativity in one area, unusual uses, can transfer to responding in another area, problem solutions. Suggests operationally defined creative responses can be increased by behavioral techniques and may transfer to other settings. (JAC)

Glover, John A. – Journal of Genetic Psychology, 1980
Examines the effects of a creativity training workshop on the behaviorally defined creative responses (fluency, flexibility, and originality on both unusual uses and problem-solution exercises) of 14 college students. (CM)

Glover, John A. – Journal of Genetic Psychology, 1976
A total of 86 black fourth-grade children and 111 white fourth-grade children randomly selected from normal classrooms in a rural county school system in Tennessee were compared on Torrance's Unusual Uses and Ask and Guess activities. No differences were found on the frequency or flexibility measures for either activity. (MS)

Glover, John A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1989
Four experiments with 263 undergraduates and 57 seventh-graders examined the "testing phenomenon" in relation to students' memory for brief passages and labels for parts of flowers. The phenomenon, which involves the positive effects of previous testing on final test performance, appears to depend on several complete retrieval events. (TJH)

Glover, John A. – Reading Research and Instruction, 1989
Examines the effect of inserted questions with and without feedback on students' estimates of posttest performance. Finds that requiring students to answer inserted questions and then providing students with feedback on their responses leads to more accurate student estimates of posttest performance. (MG)

Glover, John A.; And Others – Journal of Educational Research, 1987
Five experiments were conducted in an attempt to determine if college students' memory for oral directions could be enhanced. Mnemonic, paraphrase, and control conditions were compared for level of recall and recall in correct order. Results are discussed. (Author/MT)

Dinnel, Dale; Glover, John A. – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1985
Two experiments were conducted to examine the possibility that varying college students' methods of encoding advance organizers would influence the memorability of the organizers and subsequent reading materials. Results indicated that students dealing with the semantic base of organizers had significantly greater memory for the organizers and…

Glover, John A.; And Others – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1982
A distinctiveness of encoding hypothesis, as applied to the facilitative effects that higher order objectives have on readers' prose recall, was evaluated in three experiments. Results suggest that distinctiveness of encoding may offer a theoretical basis for the effects of adjunct aids as well as a guide to their construction. (Author/GK)
