The datasets contains all raw and analyzed data in the research described in the research paper by Gu and Colleagues (see above). The paper aimed to examine the effectiveness of four cognitive-based training techniques (SCAMPER, random connection, schema violation, and simple ideation), each involving differnent cognitive processes on enhancing specific creativity indicators. This study employed a pre-posttest between-subjects design, including a control group (i.e., memory training). Before and after the training, participants’ creativity was examined on both divergent thinking (i.e., Alternative Uses Task) and convergent thinking (i.e., Remote Associates Test). A full description of the procedure of data collection as well as all measures is given in the Method section of the paper as well as the DMP document. The training and the collection of data were conducted in the BSI lab using Qualtrics. The raw data were recoded into final scores based on a creativity scoring manual, which is not shared openly (intellectual property). Please see the Method section in the paper or contact the authors for more information. The raw and analyzed data are provided in SPSS. The syntax files contain all steps of data analyses that are performed in order to get to the results as described in the paper.
