NAKANO, Tatiana de Cassia. Can creativity be measured?: Reflections on methods used and issues involved. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.1, pp.128-145. ISSN 1809-5267.

The investigation of creativity has been, historically, marked by questions about the possibility of its measurement. This paper was elaborated in order to discuss issues related to the evaluation of this construct, its benefits, methods (formal, informal, qualitative, quantitative, objective and subjective), and aspects involved (cognitive, conative, emotional, environmental, creative performance). The manuscript still brings some recommendations for the area. It presents arguments that support the possibility of creativity assessment in a valid and precise way, through different methods and techniques, so that its various components can be covered, concluding about the need for evaluation to be seen as a process, subject to the influence of cultural standards and values.

Palavras-chave : Fitness; Divergent thinking; Psychological evaluation; Psychological tests.
