# Analogy Problems to Assess Creativity

To assess the speed of analogical reasoning, researchers developed a computer game. In the game, participants were presented with an analogy and had to choose a picture that best completed it. The object was to complete the analogy as quickly as possible without sacrificing accuracy. The participants were judged based on the answer they chose and the time it took them to complete the problem. This game has been designed to improve participants’ speed of thinking and reasoning.

## MATAA model of analogical reasoning

MATAA is a general framework for analogical reasoning. It incorporates a causal condition and the idea of a hypothetical analogy. Positive analogies, on the other hand, are based on accepted similarities and propositions. Assume that a hypothetical analogy holds a particular degree of support (p).

MATAA is based on the idea that people learn from mapping relational structures from one domain to another. Applying this model to the design of digital game instructional systems enables developers to create highly engaging educational experiences. A MATAA model begins with a rectangular representation of the real-world relational structure of the knowledge domain being taught. Then, participants are required to infer a missing figure or select a solution from four alternatives. The task consists of three types of problems: 0-relational, one-relational, and relational. The first type involves no relation to the other two figures, while the last two require analogical reasoning to identify the missing figure.

MATAA preserves the essentials of stare decisis and avoids the trap of assuming that analogical arguments are always bad. Its main flaw is that it neglects the issue of multiple analogies, a phenomenon that is common in legal reasoning and in many other contexts. Therefore, it is critical to developing a substantive theory of analogical reasoning for analogy problems.

In order to make sense of analogical problems, the MATAA model requires an understanding of the relationship between the target concept and the source concept. This connection between analogical reasoning and thematic thinking is strong. Researchers from the University of Cambridge have developed a computational model that shows how this relational connection facilitates the transfer of strategy from an analogous problem to a new one. This model also explains how a child’s ability to transfer strategies from one domain to another is strengthened through the application of classical analogy.

## Weinberger problem set

The Weinberger problem set is an educational tool designed to assess creative thinking skills. It contains two matrices with five unique A: B stem pairs and 20 unique completion pairs. Researchers instruct students to choose only valid analogies and completion pairs. They also allow students to select the same completion pair for two or more stem pairs. In this way, students can assess their creativity through problem-solving. The problems are similar to those in the MIT Sloan Cognitive Science Program.

Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium equation: The solution to this equation determines the frequency of both dominant and recessive alleles. It also calculates the percentage of heterozygous individuals. It was originally developed for an AP Biology class. The older version had numerous answers available online. The revised version has been changed to discourage shortcuts. As a result, a solution to this equation may not be the best option.

## Sternberg problem set

The Sternberg problem set was created to investigate the process of creative thinking. It comprises two matrices and five unique A: B stem pairs, along with 20 different completion pairs. Researchers instruct students to select the correct completion pair for each stem pair, based on the number of valid analogies that are associated with each stem. Students are also given the option to choose the same completion pair for more than one stem pair. This test measures the amount of logical reasoning and creativity that students are capable of.

The Sternberg problem set contains 180 multiple-choice analogy, antonymy, and synonymy problems. These problems are typically presented in a sequential manner, and the correct answer is given more points when the pair is similar in structure or meaning. For students to score well on the Sternberg problem set, it is important to provide links between training and real-world behavior. Listed below are some of the problems from the Sternberg problem set.

Sternberg has been troubled by the traditional view of intelligence since his school days. He nearly failed the fifth-grade IQ test but passed under relaxed conditions. His lifelong interest in human intelligence has continued to this day. The book is a collection of exercises based on his triarchic theory. These exercises are designed to improve cognitive functioning and develop an understanding of how the brain works.

While the three sub-theories of the theory of mind can be used to explain the behavior of an agent, they are often incompatible. Hence, a comprehensive explanation of intelligence requires the interaction of all three sub-theories. The componential sub-theory describes mental processes underpinning behavior, while the contextual sub-theory examines how intelligence relates to its environment. The experiential sub theory describes the relationship between experience and behavior.

## Word embeddings

To solve analogy problems, machine learning methods should decompose the input cell into several terms, two of which depend on the word to predict. The largest component, b*b, is proportional to the similarity between b and its offset, on. However, the similarity between the two offsets cannot be explained by the offset length. The same general process is followed to derive the overall score.

The first step in evaluating an approach is to determine whether an analogy is correct. In this respect, we use the concept of offset concentration. This is a decomposition of analogy similarity, which is defined as the difference between the similarity of b* and b. In this case, we have no common direction between b* and b. Therefore, we call the comparison between two words an analogy.

Several authors have demonstrated the effectiveness of word embeddings for solving analogy problems. Anna Gladkova, Joshua Chin, and Catherine Havasi have done extensive research on this area. Their findings show that word embeddings improve the ability of a person to understand analogy problems and are more accurate than morphology alone. They also show improved performance on analog tests compared to derivational morphology relations.

While the arithmetic analogy test can be used to detect linguistic regularities, it can fail to do so. For example, spurious within-pair similarity and offset concentration may dominate the test results. Furthermore, PCS values are low when compared to random word pairs. Therefore, we recommend using a different test to measure how accurate a word embedding model is. There are several factors that should be kept in mind when designing a word embedding, which are described below.

## Open-ended problems

In a longitudinal study, researchers examined the performance of children on open-ended analogy problems. They compared children who received unguided practice and those who received training. Both groups made progress in solving analogy problems, but children in the unguided practice group exhibited lower performance. Although this difference was not statistically significant, the findings suggest that children who received unguided practice have lower performance than their peers. Hence, they should receive some form of training to help them solve open-ended analogy problems.

In the first type of problem, the question is presented with an A-B word pair. There are multiple options for each word pair. The challenge is to select the best matching pair. The more options a person has, the better. However, systematicity may not be the only marker of a good analogy. In fact, systematicity is only a fallible marker. Good analogies must be open-ended. A good analogy can be open-ended and non-synonymous.

In addition to formal analogy, analogical arguments must be non-arbitrary. Similarly, analogical arguments that don’t satisfy Hesse’s condition can be weaker. Both these conditions may be met if the context of an analogy differs. The latter type of analysis requires an inferential context that is based on facts, rather than an abstract concept. Although this last type of analysis may be necessary to determine the validity of analogical arguments, it is often difficult to achieve that inference.

Although analogical arguments have a clear philosophical justification, there are other problems related to this form of argumentation. These challenges require high-level formulation and abstract characterization of analogical arguments. There are many examples of analogical arguments that conform to the above-mentioned schema, but many of them are bad. Thus, a high-level formulation of analogical arguments must specify a subset of good analogical arguments and link them to it.
