Schools are expected to teach students to be creative. But how do we know what works to develop student creativity? How do we know if creative skills are improving in individuals, students and in the workforce? Educators are asking for more student assessments that go beyond standardized testing to include the measurement of creativity. Our society values most what can be measured. We will explore the challenge of measuring imagination to increase its value in schools, business and government. We will introduce H-IQ (Hunter Imagination Questionnaire), the first measurement that charts the growth of individual imagination, the ideation capacity that leads to creativity and innovation. H-IQ is being applied in pilot programs in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts schools after MRI measurements established strong correlation between H-IQ scores and brain structures associated with creativity. You will:
• Evaluate creativity assessments, including divergent thinking tests, measures of personality style, and new measures of imagination.
• Explore how these assessments can best serve the individual.
• Learn about the H-IQ (Hunter Imagination Questionnaire), the first measurement that charts the growth of individual imagination.
