Torrance Tests for Creative Thinking – Verbal & Figural (TTCT)

Title: Torrance Tests for Creative Thinking – Verbal & Figural (TTCT)
Author: Torrance, E. Paul.
Year: 1990 – 2008
Description: The Torrance Tests of Creativity Thinking (TTCT) is designed to identify and evaluate creative potential using two parts – a Verbal test and a Figural test.

  • The Verbal test contains seven subtests – Asking, Guessing Causes, Guessing Consequences, Product Improvement, Unusual Uses, Unusual Questions, and Just Suppose. Subtests are scored on the basis of fluency, flexibility, and originality (with a score on elaboration as optional), and these scores are accumulated across all subtests. The totals may be converted to standard T scores if normative reference is desired.
  • The Figural test has three subsets – Picture Construction (from a marked cue), Picture Completion (again with cues), and Parallel Lines. The first of these subtests is scored on originality and elaboration while the remainder are scored on fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. Totals are then accumulated across subtests to provide overall scores for Figural fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. These scores, as in the Verbal test, can be converted to a standard T score.

The tests are game-like to catch children’s interests. The scoring of the tests is by hand and require careful attention to the manual for reliable results. However, “streamlined” guides are available and are helpful in developing greater familiarity with the test and its scoring procedures. Grades K through graduate school.
