Abstract

The present study aimed to find the relationship between Scientific Creativity and Achievement of Senior Secondary School Students in Physical and Biological Sciences. The objectives of the study were a) to study the status of Scientific Creativity among Senior Secondary School Students; b) to study the influence on Scientific Creativity of Senior Secondary School Students having different levels of Achievement: and c) to study the relationship between Scientific Creativity and Achievement of Senior Secondary School Students. The sample comprised of 300 class XII students belonging to physical and biological sciences from 4 CBSE and 4 M P Board schools. The data was collected using a) Majumdar Scientific Creativity Test developed by S. K. Majumdar: and b) Cognitive Style Inventory developed by Dr. Praveen Kumar Jha. The marks obtained by the students in Class XI in Physical and Biological Sciences were also collected and these were considered as their achievement. The findings of the study are - a) more than half of the senior secondary school students have an average level of scientific creativity; b) almost half of the senior secondary school boys and almost three-fifths of the senior secondary school girls have an average level of scientific creativity; c) three-fifths of the senior secondary students from C.B.S.E schools and almost half of the senior secondary students from M P Board have an average level of scientific creativity; d) almost half of the students from biological and physical sciences have an average level of scientific creativity; e) The senior secondary level school students having a high level of achievement have the most scientific creativity; and f) senior secondary school students who have whose achievement is better to have better scientific creativity and the senior secondary level school students who have low achievement have poorer scientific creativity. The implications of the study were also discussed.
