Abstract—More innovative imagination and concrete results
would be meaningfully produced to become civilized products
and cultural creativity if the creative techniques can be
employed through creative problem-solving teaching. The
purpose of this study was to apply the morphological analysis
on experimental teaching. ANCOVA was employed to analyze
the change of the students' creative problem-solving thinking,
and qualitatively analyze the creative problem-solving process
of the team's performance imaginary creative works. The
participants of this study were 105 students from the University
of Science and Technology, which were divided into
experimental group and control group. The research method
was quasi-experimental research with the Nonequivalent
Pretest-Posttest Designs. The research instruments included the
Abbreviated Torrance Test for Adults (ATTA), the creative
problem-solving teaching design with learning perception
questionnaire, and the expert assessment with creative
imagination work scale. The conclusions of this study were as
the followings: 1. In the creative problem-solving, the students
in the experimental group achieved higher significant level in
terms of producing innovative ideas than the students in the
control group; whereas did not achieve the significant level
regarding the awareness of challenges, preparing for actions
and planning for methods. 2. In the expert assessment with
creative imagination work scale, the students in the
experimental group achieved higher significant level in terms of
relevance & effectiveness, problem concentrating, elaboration,
originality, multiple-possibilities, connectivity, transcendence
than the students in the control group. 3. In the Qualitative
analysis regarding creative problem-solving, the students were
recognized lacking of practical experiences; it was difficult for
them to conduct the preparation for actions and planning for
methods to solve the practical problems.
