Creative thinking is a key skill for young people. For many years, future-oriented educational frameworks or skills rankings placed creative thinking near the top of their priorities. How can we make creative thinking visible, comparable, and amenable to policy and classroom action?
Some might argue that assessment directly opposes efforts to strengthen creativity in the classroom, while others argue that creativity is too hard to define and measure. But we cannot improve or call attention to what we cannot see. We need to do more to support educators and policymakers in recognising, building, and rewarding creative thinking in education systems.
Join us as we discuss the PISA 2022 creative thinking assessment, what is involved, why and how we are testing creative thinking as well as other approaches to measuring creative thinking both at scale and in the classroom.
