Assessing Creativity: The Test for Creative Thinking-Drawing Production (TCT-DP)
Urban, Klaus K.
International Education Journal, v6 n2 p272-280 May 2005
The Test for Creative Thinking-Drawing Production (TCT-DP), its design, concept and evaluation scheme as well as experiences and results of application are described. The test was designed to mirror a more holistic concept of creativity than the mere quantitatively oriented, traditional divergent thinking tests. The specific design using figural fragments is explained. The drawing production is evaluated by means of a set of criteria, which at the same time represent the underlying test construct. The test has been normed with various age and ability groups; there were no significant differences between male and female subjects. Various studies with data concerning the reliability and validity of the TCT-DP are provided. (Contains 2 footnotes, 2 tables and 1 figure.)
