Applicability of the Test of Creative Thinking-Drawing Production for Assessing Creative Potential of Hong Kong Adolescents
Gifted Child Quarterly, v48 n3 p202 Sum 2004
This study explored the applicability of the Test of Creative Thinking-Drawing Production (TCT-DP) in the Hong Kong Chinese cultural context. The psychometric properties of scores on the TCT-DP were examined in a sample of 2,368 Hong Kong Chinese students aged 12 to 16. The study compared the TCT-DP's internal consistency, interrater, and test-retest reliability coefficients for the Hong Kong sample to previously reported findings for European samples. Structural, concurrent, and discriminant validity of the test scores were evaluated. Our data provided encouraging empirical evidence for the reliability and structural and discriminant validity of the TCT-DP. The psychometric properties of the test were comparable to those obtained for European samples. However, the very low stability of Humor and Unconventionality "b" scales is of some concern. No sex differences were observed with regard to the test scores.
