Theory and Practice of Creativity Measurement explores important and fascinating topics related to the assessment of creativity. An introductory chapter provides an overview of numerous measures to assess the multiple dimensions of creativity and addresses the parameters to be considered when evaluating the quality of the available instruments, as well as the steps to be taken in their administration and interpretation. The next six chapters each describe an instrument designed to assess a variable related to creativity, such as obstacles to personal creativity, classroom climate for creativity, creativity in mathematics, and creativity strategies at the work setting. These instruments may be used in the school context or in the workplace for diagnostic purposes and for planning intervention strategies to facilitate the development and expression of the capacity to create. The book offers numerous insights that may be a source of inspiration for researchers in the area, unveiling new possibilities for research and promotion of creativity.

This book is written for researchers interested in the measurement of creativity in education and the workplace. This does not mean, however, that the book is not of use to practitioners. Researchers will appreciate the detailed explanations and analysis of the development process for various creativity measurement tools. What practitioners will find useful is each chapter’s review of the research literature and the assessment instruments included in the book. The short volume is compiled by Brazilian academics with extensive experience in creativity research. Chapters address the challenges and possibilities for measurement of creativity; an inventory measuring obstacles to personal creativity; assessment of the climate for creativity in the classroom; an inventory of teaching practices for creativity in higher education; assessing creativity in mathematics; indicators of the climate for creativity in the workplace; and strategies for creating at work. I would recommend this...
As a creativity researcher, this little book by three Brazilian women has really excited me. I have not seen anything like it on the American market. Because the world of creativity research considered in the USA too often begins and ends with New York and California, Prufrock Press is commended for publishing this work. There is an excellent review on studies of creativity, its measurement in various forms, and issues related to assessment, clearly written, concise, and authoritative. Included are meticulously-researched assessment instruments (often based on cross-cultural data) on obstacles to personal creativity, classroom climate (3rd/4th grade), measures of creativity in mathematics (high school level), teaching practices that support creativity in higher education (both from student and faculty perspectives), work place climate, and strategies for creating at work (a new research direction and precursor for further research), as well as the theoretical and statistical basis for...
Really very specific material, created by the authors. It's not a broad work on the measurement of creativity.
