Languages of publication
The chief aim of this study was to develop and validate a questionnaire to analyse the analogical and creative processes used by individuals when solving open problems. The investigation was carried out with a sample of 349 participants, ages 14 to 15 years, 147 boys and 202 girls, from both public and subsidized schools of the Community of Navarre (Spain). The employed procedure was a four-phase sequence: elaboration of the items of the questionnaire, administration of the analogical reasoning and creativity tests, training in the analogical procedure and creativity components, and solution of an open problem, responding individually to the questionnaire. Psychometric analyses revealed that the seven-item Analogical and Creative Questionnaire (ACQ) has satisfactory internal consistency, a clear factor structure, and acceptable convergent and content validity.
