    Abstract

    The thesis addresses the identification of creative potential of pupils in the first educational cycle of primary school. We introduced some definitions of creativity in the theoretical part of the thesis and determined creativity from four points of view: creative background, creative personality, creative process and creative product. We accurately devoted our work to the assessment of creativity based on the creative product, creative process and creative personality. We introduced the EPoC (Evaluation of Potential Creativity ) test – the test is used to assess creative potential, development of creativity in childhood, features of child's creativity, different ways of stimulating the creativity in the classroom and positive influence of stimulation of creativity on child's development. The results of a research of pupils of the first three classes of primary school are in the empirical part of the thesis. Using the EPoC test we recognised the creative potential of pupils on two fields of thinking – divergent-exploratory and convergent-integrative and on two fields of conveyance – verbal-literaly and artistic-graphic field. 54 pupils of the first educational cycle of primary school were randomly chosen in a sample. They took the EPoC test using standard procedures and which was leaded by qualified expert. We wanted to know, if pupils differentiated by height of creative potential, considering gender and class they are attending, and which individual type of creative potential do they meet and whether there is a connection between gender and class and the number of handed creative answers or conveyance of creative answers. Results indicated that boys and girls had similar creative potential - considering number of creative answers or conveyance of creative answers. These results didn't show statistically important differences. We also found out that pupils differentiated by height of creative potential considering the class they are attending. There is a statistically important difference of quotient of divergent-graphic field between the pupils of the first and second class. There is also a statistically important difference of quotient of divergent-verbal field between the pupils of the first and second class and pupils of the first and third class. There is a statistically important difference of quotient of integrative-verbal field of creative potential between pupils of the first and third class. The results of recognising the individual types of creative potential indicate that most pupils meet divergent profile of creative potential, which is followed by high profile, the graphic profile, the verbal profile and low potential profile of creative potential. Integrative profile of creative potential was not recognised at all. We found out that there is a connection between the number of creative answers and class, that pupils are attending at artistic –graphic subtest of divergent-exploratory thinking based on abstract stimulation between the first and second class. There is also a connection between conveyance of creative conversation at verbal-literaly subtest of convergent-integrative thinking – and the title of a story and class in the first and third class.
