This study investigated the relationship of Originality, Fluency, Flexibility, and Elaboration as measured by the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking to scores taken from the WISC-R’s of 40 EMR students. The Torrance scores of students placed in EMR programs early in their school career were compared to the scores of students at the same grade levels who were placed late in EMR programs. Students placed in EMR programs later in their school careers scored slightly higher on the Torrance than students placed in EMR programs early. However, this difference was not significant. No relationship was found between teacher scores on the Torrance and the mean scores of their respective classes. Scores for creativity were unrelated to scores for intelligence.
