The Contribution Ratio of Mind’s Habits in Predicting ‎Creative Self-Efficacy for Gifted Students ‎


Muhannad Alqudah, Ministry of Education, Jordan.


Abstract: The present study aimed at uncovering the contribution ratio of ‎the mind’s habits in predicting creative self-efficacy of gifted ‎students in Jordan, and to find out if there are statistically ‎significant differences in mind’s habits and creative self-‎efficacy attributed to gender and class variables in a cluster ‎sample of (420) gifted students in basic seventh and tenth ‎grades in King Abdullah II Schools of Excellence, Jordan. To ‎achieve the aims of the study, Rodgers’ scale for habits of mind ‎and Abbott’s scale for creative self-efficacy were used, after ‎verifying their validity and reliability. Results of the study ‎showed that the mean scores for creative self-efficacy in ‎females were higher than in males. Also, the results showed ‎that the mean scores for some habits of students’ mind as well ‎as their creative self-efficacy were higher among seventh grade ‎students if compared to 10th graders. Finally, multiple ‎regression analysis results showed that persistence habits, the ‎application of knowledge, thinking and communicating clearly ‎and accurately, along with creativity, imagination and collecting ‎data by using their senses, have contributed effectively in ‎predicting creative self-efficacy
