|Title:||Assessing Creativity in Composing Music: Product-Process-Person-Environment Approaches||Contributor(s):||Auh, Myung-sook (author)||Publication Date:||2001||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10483||Abstract:||How do teachers and researchers assess creativity in composing music? Four approaches can be used: assessing 1) Product, 2) Process, 3) Person, and 4) Environment. The purpose of the study was: 1) to give an overview of research studies in each of the four approaches, and 2) to suggest a Product-oriented method for assessing creativity in composing music and story-telling by children, which was successfully used with high interjudge reliabilties in Auh & Johnston (2000). The overview should give a clear picture of assessment methods for creativity in composing music. The overview shows that: 1) Product - A most commonly used method for assessing music compositions is expert judges' evaluations using criteria. Computerized content analysis has been used for Western classical masterpieces. 2) Process - Compositional strategies used by Expert vs. novice can be described as Gestaltistic vs. Atomistic. 3) Person - Visual imagery stimulated by use of graphic notations in composing music made a significant difference in musical creativity, producing more creative compositions. 4) Environment - Creativity in the East versus the West can be described as intuition vs. logic. Cross-cultural studies of musical creativity show that musicians of non-western countries emphasize aural skills, improvisation, and opportunity to exercise creative potentials.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||AARE 2000 International Education Research Conference - Educational Research: Towards an Optimistic Future, Sydney, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2000||Conference Details:||AARE 2000 International Education Research Conference - Educational Research: Towards an Optimistic Future, Sydney, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2000||Source of Publication:||AARE 2000 International Education Research Conference Proceedings||Publisher:||AARE: Australian Association for Research in Education||Place of Publication:||Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130309 Learning Sciences||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930101 Learner and Learning Achievement||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aare.edu.au/00pap/auh00016.htm
