The datasets contains all raw and analyzed data in the research described in the research paper by Gu and Colleagues. The paper aimed to test the effectiveness of a one-year creativity training program for higher education. The creativity of students following the training is measured before, halfway, and after the training. In addition to the within-subjects comparison across time, performance is compared to a matched control group. At each of the measurement points, different versions of seven well-validated creativity tasks (capturing divergent and convergent creative thinking skills) are employed. After data collection, * only students who take the three creativity tests; and those who take the training > 9 times, are included into final data analysis. The training were carried out in the school class as a course. Data were collected online via Qualtrics. A methodology section and a codebook are provided below, which explains in detail how the raw data were recoded into final scores/analyzed data.
