OECD Research Project: Assessing Progression in Creative and Critical Thinking Skills

Wavehill are leading a research project aimed at assessing progression in creative and critical thinking skills in schools in Wales, as part of an international study with the OECD*. The study is concerned with developing approaches to creative teaching and learning practices in classrooms, and is trialing assessment tools and tests in creativity (convergent and divergent thinking). Twenty-two Lead Creative Schools [1] are involved in this pilot over 2016-17 and groups of pupils are participating in pre and post-intervention assessment.

*The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental economic organisation that aims to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.

[1] Lead Creative Schools are schools participating in an Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government funded scheme as part of the Creative Learning Through the Arts programme (2015-2020).
