NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia et al. Creativity Assessment in The High Abilities/Giftedness Context: Evidence of Validity. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.3, pp. 835-854. ISSN 1808-4281.

The aim of the present study was to search for evidence of validity based on external convergent-like variables for a subtest to assess figural creativity, part of a Battery for Assessment of High Abilities/Giftedness (BAAH/S). The sample consisted of 114 students of the 2nd year (n = 15) and 3rd year (n = 99) of high school, aged between 15 and 20 years (M = 17; SD = 0.85), 52 male, coming from a public school. Participants completed the Children's Figural Creativity Test (TCFI) and the Completing Figures Subtest (in validation process). Through the Pearson Correlation, factors that evaluate similar creative aspects showed positive and significant correlations (r = 0.64 between emotional factors; r = 0.60 between cognitive factors; r = 0.56 between enrichment factors ideas), indicating convergence between measures. The correlation between the isolated creative characteristics evaluated in both tests was mostly significant, with values ranging between r = 0.21 and r = 0.61. These results make it possible to confirm positive evidences of validity for the developing subtest.
