Abstract

Evaluated the hypothesis that affective components of creativity (e.g., attitudes, values, interests, or motivations) would be strengthened in an undergraduate creativity course. A 2-group, 2-test design was used in which Class A (approximately 87 Ss) received the How Do You Think (HDYT) test before the coursework and the Adjective Check List (ACL; scored for creativity) after the training. Students in Class B (approximately 60 Ss) took the ACL before and the HDYT after the training. For each class, the after-training creativity test scores were significantly higher than the before-training scores of the other class. Both tests were moderately valid in predicting rated creativeness of student projects. (5 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
