Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the diverse ways in which creativity is measured, such as divergent thinking, self-reporting and self-assessment. The authors alert us that the way in which creativity is measured influences our understanding of creativity. They go on to assert that measures of creativity are not easily interchangeable, if interchangeable at all.
