Summary

This study compared the creative self-direction, creative behavior, and creative activities of preschool children to determine if students and teachers trained in the creative process and in observation techniques can, with reliability, observe the creative potential of young children. Creative abilities of 155 children from four preschool centers in Bismarck, North Dakota were identified through the use of three instruments: Kindergarten Evaluation of Learning (KELP); the Starkweather Test of Conforming and Nonconforming Behavior; and a Creative Activities Checklist (an instrument designed for teacher and parent training). Data were collected by teachers and college students enrolled in a 15-week course on creativity. At the end of the course, correlations among the three instruments were computed using Pearson's Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient and Spearman's Rank-Order Correlation Coefficient. General conclusions were: (1) teachers and students working with the three instruments can become aware of the total education of the child, including cognitive, affective, and psychomotor aspects; (2) the Creative Activities Checklist is a valid instrument for measuring small children's creativity; and (3) the checklist is of value in alerting both teachers and parents to the significance of creativity and some means of fostering it in children.
