Pennsylvania Assessment of Creative Tendency: Norms-Technical Manual.
Rookey, T. Jerome
The Pennsylvania Assessment of Creative Tendency (PACT) is an experimental Likert Style Attitude Inventory designed to measure the creative tendency of elementary school children. PACT has been constructed over a period of four years, and has been subjected to item and factor analyses. The reading level has been set at Grade 5.0 or lower. To facilitate use in varied projects, PACT has been produced in several forms. The reliability of PACT has been consistently high, above 0.77, throughout several research projects. Investigations of content, predictive, criterion-related, and construct validity have yielded very favorable results. (Author/AG)
