Abstract

Creativity assessment is the cornerstone of effective creativity development in higher education. It is one of the main topics in creativity research; as it is one of the most difficult skill to measure in any of the 21 st century skills. We argue that, in additions to the big five, creativity in higher education is related to the environment and that more research is needed to understand this relations. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate this relations, specifically creativity domain with personality traits and the academic environment. Measures for these constructs were administered to 103 Malaysian undergraduate students. In order to examine the nature of the relations between creative personality and other constructs we used Structural Equation Modeling. The results indicate that the model is valid and reliable for assessing the creative person of higher education students. This study showed that both personality traits and academic environment are important to assess the creative personality.
