Creativity and Innovation in Education

The Effects of Problem-Based Learning on the Creative Thinking Abilities of University Students in a General Psychology Course

In this research, an experiment was conducted to determine how different types of creative thinking abilities changed as a result of exposure to the different teaching methods. The independent variable is tutor help (problem-based learning), the covariate is the raw scores of pre-unit abilities (pretest), and the dependent variable is the raw scores of post-unit abilities (posttest). Overall, the intervention appeared effective for improving the dimensions of creative potential as measured by the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking-Figural. There were significant main effects of fluency, originality, elaboration, abstractness of titles and resistance to premature closure.
