This study aimed to investigate the effect of a digital mind map (DMM) assisted group investigation (GI) on students’ creativity in higher education. A pre-test post-test nonequivalent control group design was employed in this study. The study was conducted in 2019/2020 to 75 fifth semester students from IKIP Budi Utomo Malang, Indonesia. The data were collected using a pre-test and a post-test on students’ creativity. The students’ creative performance was evaluated using a rubric assessing the keywords, material’s completeness, material’s conformity, layout organization, creativity, symbols, and color used in the students' mind maps. Testing for the normality and homogeneity of variance was conducted before the ANCOVA was run to examine the data. The statistical analysis showed a difference between students in the DMM-GI group and students in the DMM-conventional group in terms of creativity. The mean score of the DMM-GI group (79.30) was higher than that of the DMM-conventional group (74.96). Therefore, it can be concluded that the DMM-GI group had better creative performance compared to the DMM-conventional group.
