The Effects of Scoring Formulas on the Discriminant Validity of Tests of Divergent Thinking.
Hocevar, Dennis; Michael, William B.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v39 n4 p917-21 Win 1979
Two multitrait-multimethod studies were conducted to investigate the effects of two scoring formulas. The study demonstrates that tests of divergent thinking lack discriminant validity when scored in the usual manner. A percentage formula did enhance discriminant validity when originality ratings were subjectively determined. (Author/CTM)
