The Development of Teacher's Role Scale for Improving Young Children's Creativity
Mi Ok Moon
The teacher`s role scale for improving young children`s creativity is designed for both teacher self-rating and observer rating. Content validity was determined by 5 experts who defined the domains of specific content. Construct validity was obtained by the self-ratings of 404 teachers of 3- to 5-year-old children. Five factors using 38 items of the original 59 were found to be related to the teacher`s role in improving young children`s creativity. The factors were Indulgence and Perseverance, Flexibility, Originality, Elaboration, and Fluency. Convergent validity was confirmed by positive correlations of the Teacher`s Role Scale with the Teacher`s Creativity Test of the Korean Institute for Research in the Behavioral Sciences. For internal consistency, Cronbach α of the 5 factors ranged from .74 to .88. Test-retest reliability coefficientents ranged from .653 to .838. These results confirm the Scale as a valid and reliable measure of the teacher`s role in improving the creativity of young children.
