Investigated the effects of the self-instructional use of programmed creativity materials for gifted and regular students. Programmed creativity-training materials were used on an individualized basis. The Purdue Creativity Training Program was made available for self-instruction for 12 wks by half of the 648 4th-, 5th-, and 6th-grade students; the other students comprised the control groups. Pre- and posttests of creative thinking (5 subtests of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) were administered. Experimental Ss attained significantly greater gains on verbal fluency. It is concluded that creative thinking abilities can be improved through self-instructional progammmed materials for gifted and regular students.
