The Effectiveness of SCAMPER Technique on Creative Thinking Skills

Melodi OZYAPRAK [1]


Current study assumes that SCAMPER is a convenient technique to develop creative thinking skills. In this respect it is aimed in the study to investigate the effect of SCAMPER on developing creative thinking skills. For this purpose, the main research question is: How much is SCAMPER effective in increasing sophomores’ Test for Creative Thinking - Drawing Production (TCT-DP) scores? A one-group pretest-posttest design was used in this study. A total of 14 participants were assigned to receive the experimental training. A unique program developed by the researcher for the experimental group. The findings of the study reveal that SCAMPER training significantly increased TCT-DP scores.
