Please specify drawing below.” Students’ answers are given in Table 5.

Question 6: “If you were given two types of napkins, how would you test to see which one is better? Please list all probable methods, tools and procedures you can mention with a simple language.” Answers are displayed in Table 6.

Table 6: Frequency Analysis of Question 6 Originality Answers and Frequencies score 0 I would test with water (36), I would check which one is softer (10), I would check plies (10).

2 I would check its roller (9), I would check its thickness (9), I would check its endurance by pulling (6), 4 I would smell it (3), I would check its size (3), I would compare their weight (2), I would stick it into tables and put a ball to check its tearing (1), I would wrinkle like a ball and measure its radius (1), I would place a piece of ice and see which one is of poor quality according to the one which falls first (1), I would toss them and measure lengths of falling time (1), I would tear it in pieces and count (1), I would rub them (1), I would use as handkerchief (1) Question 7: “Please design an apple picking machine. Draw the machine and specify name and function of each part”. Examples of students’ drawings are revealed in Figure 2. It was observed that the students designed apparatus similar to vacuum cleaner, human arm (robot), sticks for falling apples and other devices for shaking the trees. It can be said that the students designed the apple picking machine by using flexibility property of realia. It can be argued that drawings besides verbal answers allow observing creativity more clearly.

It seems that administering Hu and Adey’s scientific creativity test (2002) is easier than administering the other creativity tests. Since it is impractical to produce a product by using pen and paper, the test’s capacity to measure all dimensions is limited. Comparison of previous academic success of participant students with fluency and authenticity of their answers seems to support the argument that there is a positive still weak relationship between academic success and creativity. On the other hand, it is obvious that variety of students’ responses is high. It might support the literature in that knowledge is necessary but not sufficient for creativity.

It is one of the main objectives of science education to support scientific creativity. To this end, the creativity 81 Copyright © International Journal on New Trends in Education and Their Implications / www.ijonte.org


IN THE WORLD November 2014, Volume: 4 Issue: 4 Article: 10 ISSN: 2146-7463 tests can be applied more times. As a result, testing and using of the creativity tests may provide concrete contribution for reaching to goals.

Electrical appliances, transport and communication means, pieces of art, books, programs, foods and even most laws are products of human creativity. Doubtlessly, production and exportation as fundamentals of a developing economy can also be improved thanks to creativity. Failure to bring up individuals who are able to think creatively causes using of many innovations in technology, law, sociology and many other fields by derivation, which in turn results in inability to produce required solutions satisfactorily.

The path taken in traditional education is alien to the society, technology, and innovations. Moreover, stereotyped questions and knowledge affect students’ creativity negatively. Taking into consideration that only those who are good at mathematical operations can achieve in university entrance exams, many individuals are lost despite their potentials in various fields. Consequently, teachers should create a learning environment where students can feel and produce authentic ideas in order to develop creativity at school (Demirci, 2007).
