Game-Like vs. Standard Test Environment: Administration of Divergent Thinking Tests

Saturday, November 11
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 204

Divergent thinking tests are widely used to assess creative potential. Although administration of DT tests requires a different procedure than most of the standard achievement and intelligence tests, it has been ignored by many teachers and DT research studies in recent years. This presentation focuses on administration settings of DT tests that are helpful in discovering creative potential. The authors share the most recent findings based on a study examining administration of three DT tests in four different test conditions. Participants learn about different testing practices and how they influence assessment of creative potential.
