Abstract

This study examined self-assessed creativity and design. In particular, it analyzed the relationships of self-assessment with the level of expertise, and the grades obtained by students in the course of their academic studies, with possible implications for design education. Findings support the view that self-assessed creativity is a valid and legitimate tool for design evaluation. Understanding how students assess their own design tasks and products have important implications for design education, and paves the way for generating intervention programs to encourage and develop design creativity.
