GONZALEZ-MORENO, Alba  and  MOLERO-JURADO, María del Mar. Creativity and related variables according to educational stage: a systematic review. Alteridad [online]. 2022, vol.17, n.2, pp.246-261. ISSN 1390-8642.

Creativity is a capacity present in any person that arises spontaneously in order to solve problems or create knowledge. The objective of this study is to identify the variables used in existing research related to creativity and to classify these variables according to the educational stage (infant, primary, secondary and university studies). The methodology has been directed by the PRISMA statement and has been carried out by searching the Dialnet Plus and Web of Science databases. Some of the resources used in the searches have been the use of Boolean operators, a series of filters and the presentation of inclusion and exclusion criteria. The results obtained indicate how intelligence and academic performance are the most studied variables in relation to creativity regardless of the educational stage. It has been extracted how the investigations focused on children and primary school focus on aspects such as personality or control of emotions, while secondary studies analyze problem solving and the works aimed at university students are oriented towards styles of thought. In conclusion, it is necessary to highlight how creativity is present within the educational context and, therefore, it is necessary to know what variables are related to it in order to enhance said capacity through an appropriate intervention.
