Abstract

The purposes of this study were (1) to compare creative problem solving abilities of the experimental group students before and after using a guidance activities package with brainstorming technique; (2) to compare creative problem solving ability of the experimental group students who used a guidance activities package with brainstorming technique with that of the control group students who used a set of conventional guidance activities; and (3) to compare creative thinking abilities of the experimental group students at the end of the experiment and during the follow up period.  The research sample consisted of 30 Prathom Suksa II students of Thessaban 4 (Udomwitsomjai) School in Prachin Buri province in the 2017 academic year, who had low scores in creative problem solving ability.  Then, they were randomly assigned into an experimental group and a control group each of which comprised 15 students. The employed research instruments were (1) a guidance activities package with brainstorming technique; (2) a set of conventional guidance activities; and (3) a creative problem solving ability assessment scale with .89 reliability coefficient. The employed statistics for data analysis were the mean, standard deviation, and t-test. The research findings were that (1) after the experiment, the post-experiment problem solving ability of the experimental group students was significantly higher than their pre-experiment counterpart ability at the .01 level; (2) the post-experiment creative problem solving ability of the experimental group students was significantly higher than the counterpart ability of the control group students at the .01 level; and (3) no significant difference was found between creative problem solving abilities of the experimental group students at the end of the experiment and during the follow up period.
