ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether students’ creative problem-solving skills improve through project-based courses. Rather than measuring overall competencies, the focus was specifically on measuring the improvement of problem-solving skills. The study involved a literature review, the design of project-based courses, and the assessment and analysis of students’ competencies before and after the courses. The results of the study are as follows: Firstly, the measurement of students’ creative problem-solving skills before and after the project-based courses indicated an overall improvement in the five dimensions of problem identification, analytical thinking, flexible thinking, alternative generation, and a proactive attitude. Secondly, significant correlations were found among these five dimensions, particularly strong correlations were observed between problem identification and alternative generation, problem identification and analytical thinking, and analytical thinking and alternative generation. To generalize the findings of this study, further research is needed to apply similar approaches in different types of courses and across various universities and departments.
