• This paper compares performance and creativity of design projects before (pre) and after (post) students apply creativity methods taught to them in an experimental course. Design projects are evaluated by numeric performance scores and qualitative Creative Product Semantic Scale (CPSS) scores. A preliminary pre-post analysis of design projects indicates that the creativity of the projects improves after applying creativity methods; however, a more creative project does not necessarily improve performances after applying creativity methods. CPSS 'resolution' scores and 'elaboration and synthesis' scores are good measures of project performance; however, CPSS 'novelty' scores do not have significant associations with performance scores. Projects with simpler designs perform better, which is suggested by a significant negative association between part counts and performance scores. ()
