Creativity Assessment
Creativity Testing
What is really being studied?
o Person
The person approach has guided most of the empirical research on
creativity (Nichols, 1972).
o Process
o Product
Product definitions are generally considered to be most useful for
creativity research.
Three main causes:
o Identify those who are creative, especially kids.
o Research
o Counseling (occupational, psychological)
Testing Terminology
Psychometrics
o Measure of mental variables.
Constitute
o “Creativity is to us as…”
o How you define a construct.
Operationally Define
o Specify the measure.
Content Underdepriciation
Issues in Assessment:
Reliability
o Test-Retest Reliability
Take the same test twice.
o Inter-Rater Reliability
Subjectivity of grading.
o Alternate Forms
If the modality of the measurement makes a difference.
o You want very high reliability, above .7 (approximately .6).
Validity
o Face Validity
Does it look like a creativity test?
o Content Validity
Is the content related to the field as a whole?
How wide will you study?
o Construct Validity
Are you truly measuring what you’re intending to measure?

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
