N. Nadine, Roni Reiter-Palmon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Over the past several decades, researchers and practitioners have shown a growing interest in the assessment of creativity. Creativity self-report measures can be classified into those that assess achievements, the process, beliefs, and evaluations as they relate to creativity. Approaches include attitude and interest inventories, biographical inventories, divergent thinking tests, environmental climate inventories, judgement of products, personality inventories, ratings of eminence, ratings by peers, teachers, or supervisors, and self-reports of creative activities. Creativity self-report measures can assess domain-general or domain-specific creativity, and typically assess professional and everyday creativity. Like any measure, creativity self-report measures have their specific strengths and drawbacks.
