INTRODUCTION

Each individual has a unique human thinking process. Psychologists, educators and researchers are showing increased interest in cognitive styles and learning styles, which are the fundamental factors that enhance effective learning for learners at all levels.


INTRODUCTION

Creative thinking ability is one of the most important skills that teachers must develop in learners. Creative thinking skills are critical to individual success and development of the nation. Every individual possess creative thinking ability. Psychologists and educators have expressed various viewpoints on the concept of creative thinking. Guilford (1950) proposed the concept of "divergent thinking" in the 1950s, when he noticed that creative people tend to exhibit this type of thinking more than others.


Creativity

has growing significance in contemporary world, and received increased attention in recent educational reforms around the world.


What is Creativity?

Sternberg and Lubart(1999) :

Creativity is the ability to produce work that is both

novel and appropriate. In education field, creativity

is believed to be a combination of abilities, skills,

motivation, attitudes and other factors


What is Creativity?

Ripple,1999 :

Among all these attributes, creative thinking is always considered as central to creativity

development. From the cognitive approach,

leading scholars of creativity consider

divergent thinking as the essence of

creative thinking.


What is Creativity?

Guildford, 1950 :

The most influential definition of divergent thinking includes the elements in Structure of the Intellect (SOI) Model, which are Fluency, Flexibility, Originality and Elaboration.


What is Creativity?

Torrance, 1974:

Fluency refers to the number of relevant responses.

Flexibility represents a change in thought.

Originality refers to the number of unusual, but relevant ideas as measured by the statistical infrequency of the idea.

Elaboration refers to the number of details used to extend a response.


What is Creativity?

Williams (1980):

In contrast, some scholars take an effective approach. In William’s Taxonomy of Creative Thought, he suggests that effective factors such as curiosity, imagination, Challenge-taking and risk-taking attitudes are conducive to creativity development, and motivational factors like interest, value and confidence in creative thinking are also important determinants.


Research methodology
RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Purpose of the research

The main purpose of the research was to study creative thinking level of primary students in Watsaweatachat School.


RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Research Design

This researchdata was collected solely by the researcher. Watsawettachat Schoolwas the most favorable sample because the school supports creative thinking development. Similarly, Prathomsuksa 5 students were found to be the optimal sample because this age group is the most suitable for the development of creative thinking skill.


RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

  • Torrance Test of Creative Thinking Figural Form A

  • a reliability of .804.

  • integrated Picture Construction, Picture Completion and Use of Parallel Line.

  • Students were given 10 minutes for each activity with a total time of 30 minutes for the test.

    This Torrance Test of Creative Thinking Figural Form Awas translated and modified by AareeRungsinun(1978,1979,1980 reference from

    AareePhuntumanee, 2004)


QUALITY OF RESEARCH TOOL

Researchers and experts have examined the quality of the research tool and validated the reliability of scoring between 0.95 and 0.98.

This research tool showed a high level of

reliability scoring comparing with the required

standard reliability of 0.50 (Sirichai Kanjanawasi,2001).


This research tool showed a high level of reliability scoring as illustrated below:-

Reliability Coefficient of Research Tool


THE SAMPLE OF THE STUDY scoring as illustrated below:-

  • The sample was selected using purposive sampling.

  • The sample included 64 Prathomsuksa 5 students of Watsaweatachat School studying in the second semester in the academic year 2011.


DATA ANALYSIS scoring as illustrated below:-

  • The score for each creative thinking variable will be converted out of 100.

  • The criterion is shown in this next table.

Analysis of Creative Thinking Level


RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS scoring as illustrated below:-

Creative Thinking Level of Grade 5 Students

**The absolute score was taken from the average score of the four variables.


DISCUSSIONS scoring as illustrated below:-

The research result showed that overall

Prathomsuksa 5 students have a moderate

creative thinking score with

  • a moderate level of Fluency and Elaboration, and

  • a low level of Flexibility and Originality.

    The potential cause of low creative thinking level

    is the negligence of teachers in focusing on

    developing students’ creative thinking ability.


In today’s world scoring as illustrated below:-

Creative thinking ability is

Very Essential and can be

developed by using various

approaches such as teaching,

training and creating an

Environment which can

enhance freedom in learning.


The creative thinking variable of scoring as illustrated below:-Fluencycan be developed by teaching the skills of Word Fluency, Associational Fluency, Expressional Fluency and Ideational Fluency.

Elaboration can be developed by teaching students the observational skill and the step-by-step thinking method, which will enhance the ability to think in a more detailed manner.

However, Elaboration also depends on age

factor (AareePhuntumanee, 2004).


Furthermore, to improve scoring as illustrated below:-Originality and Flexibility,

students should be taught to think innovatively

and generate new ideas.

Teachers can assist by teaching students to

analyze problems in different views and learn new

solutions to those problems.


CONCLUSION scoring as illustrated below:-

Prathomsuksa 5 students of Watsaweatachat School showed a moderate level of creative thinking.

Since Torrance Test of Creative Thinking Figural

Form A integrates Picture Construction, Picture

Completion and Use of Parallel Line, students

who are not good at art may find it difficult,

hence the low result.

However, the research results are limited only to Watsaweatachat School.
