Abstract


The present study attempts to identify the effectiveness of Marzano's dimensions of learning model in developing
creative thinking skills among the students of the foundation year at Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University, Saudi
Arabia. To achieve the study objective, a scale of creative thinking skills and a guide were prepared by the author to
clarify how to teach according to the dimensions of learning. The study utilized a quasi-experimental method to
apply the learning model to (25) female students representing the control group who were traditionally taught the
selected unit and an experimental group of (25) students who studied the same unit using Marzano's dimensions of
learning model, and pre and posttest for creative thinking skills applied to both groups. The study results showed
statistically significant differences between score means of the two groups suggesting the experimental group
excellence in creative thinking. The study recommended redesigning the university courses to comply with
Marzano's dimensions of learning model.
