Defining and Measuring Creativity: Are Creativity Tests Worth Using?
Cropley, Arthur J.
Roeper Review, v23 n2 p72-79 Dec 2000
This article argues that creativity tests are best thought of as measures of creative potential because creative achievement depends on additional factors not measured by creativity tests, such as technical skill, field knowledge, mental health, and opportunity. The need for assessment to be based on several tests is emphasized. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
