In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to find out the divergent production ability and its positive correlation with academic achievement and socio-economic status of 9th standard students of Jamukhandi Taluk of Karnataka state. The divergent production ability battery prepared and standardized by sharma K.N. and socio-economic status standardized by R.A. Singh snd S.k. Sexna were used. Total percentage of marks of previous year was considered for academic achievement. The results show that there is high divergent production ability among students as a whole. The students of urban and rural schools, boys and girls differ significantly and students of government and private schools have not shown significant difference in their divergent production ability. There is no significant positive correlation between divergent production ability and academic achievement and but there is a significant positive correlation between divergent production ability and socio-economic status of 9th standard students.
