SILVA, Talita Fernanda da  and  NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia. Computerized scale of creative characteristics: evidence of content validity. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.2, pp.166-175. ISSN 1677-0471.

The use of technology has been recommended with an additional feature in the area of psychological assessment. Within this proposal, the Computerized Scale of Creative Characteristics was developed. In order to verify the adequacy of their items, two studies were conducted. In the first one, five graduate students acted as judges, classifying the 64 items of the instrument into eight characteristics (Fluency, Flexibility, Elaboration, Originality, Expression of Emotion, Fantasy, Unusual Perspective, Analogies / Metaphors). The results demonstrated the adequacy of the items, with most of them presenting agreement indexes above 80%. Adequate Kappa values were also found for the judges. In the study 2, 50 students, aged between 18 and 50 years (M = 32.7; SD = 10.27) participated in a pilot study, helping to reformulate and adapt different aspects of the scale. The results pointed to the adequacy of the scale to the construct and to the population that it intends to evaluate.
