Can you use formative assessments to assess creativity? This post by Mark Gleeson provides a look at an in-depth working paper "Progression in Student Creativity in School: First Steps Towards New Forms of Formative Assessments."
He states:"Creativity is defined as one of the four 4Cs of Learning and Innovation in 21st Century learning. This OECD Creativity working paper is an interesting start in working out how we can define, develop and assess this wide ranging ‘skill’ we call Creativity. On display in the image above is a protype assessment tool developed from much research as outlined in the working paper."
The image below shows that they have created "The Five Dispositions Model" of the creative mind: Inquisitive, Persistent, Imaginative, Collaborative and Disciplined. In addition there are 15 sub-dispositions that are tracked along three dimensions: Strength, Breadth, and Depth. The model has been tested and a link to the pdf is in the post (as is the paper through Scribt).
As we move towards the Common Core and creativity becomes a component that we should be addressing this paper may provide additional insights into ways to use formative assessments in this area.
