Why You Still Shouldn't Trust Creativity Tests.
Baer, John
Educational Leadership, v52 n2 p72-73 Oct 1994
Refutes Bonnie Cramond's claim that divergent-thinking tests surpass expert opinions in judging creativity. Baer's original article deplores using "creativity" tests to select students for gifted/talent programs. He recommends having experts evaluate the creativity of actual products (poems and artwork). All students should be taught skills and attitudes leading to creativity. (MLH)
