Manual
Fair The manual presents a discussion of target populations and uses, directions for administration, and citations of research. It lacks details and careful organization.

Validity
Poor Information not available.

Reliability
Fair Stability over 10 weeks at the college level was .61 to .73. based on a sample of 200 students. Estimates are not available for junior-senior high.

Utility
Good This instrument can be administered to groups by any professional. It is untimed and requires 10-15 minutes. The respondent answers yes or no to a series of 67 statements. Instructions are clear and appropriate.

Interpretation
Fair Norms are based on 311 cases at the junior and senior high school level and 374 cases at the college level. The instrument is properly considered experimental. Limited research data make score interpretation and application difficult.

Propriety
Poor No data available

Reviews & Related Lit
CCL: While the items are clear, they seem to tap cognitive style or personal type preferences more than creative ability.
