Summary

These studies were conducted to verify and elaborate upon the work of Dr. John L. Holland. Dr. Holland (1959) found that teacher ratings have limited value as predictors of student creativity. The first study was conducted to arrive at or depart from Holland's findings. The second study was conducted to study the relationship of training in the arts to ability to rate student creativity. The third study was an attempt to break the evaluation task down into finer components. The final study provided the teachers with external rankings of their students' creativity. The studies utilized ten 5th grades, students and teachers from a special summer creative arts program, two 5th grades, and thirteen 5th grades, respectively. Results or conclusions were (1) the first study resulted in no discernible pattern of teacher response, (2) the second study found no significant differences between specially trained teachers and the teachers from a normal academic program, (3) the third study major finding was that the teachers' student ratings displayed bias in value, and (4) the final study reflected the strength of the teachers' value system.
