Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Research subjects in this study were Taiwan students
in Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (TCSOL) programs. A total of
561 scales were issued, and 414 subjects responded on how to analyze various
creative abilities. Four main study findings were noted: 1) male and female
students in TCSOL departments were equipped with the same abilities in language
and drawing; 2) graduate students in TCSOL departments performed better in
language ability; whereas undergraduate students in TCSOL programs performed better
in drawing ability; 3) graduate students in TCSOL departments performed better
in language ability than undergraduate students; and 4) students in the TCSOL
program performed better in drawing ability than graduate students. With
respect to normed data, approximately 414 responses were established by T-score
and percentile, which provided criteria for interpretations and implications.
