The Cebeci Test of Creativity
The Cebeci Test of Creativity (CTC) is a digital creativity assessment of the four creative domains, which include: fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration.
Creativity is one of the most important goals in education, career planning, and the traits sought by employers in all walks of life. The measurement of creative ability is, however, expensive and time consuming, as most widely used assessment instruments are paper-based and scored manually.
The CTC is intended by design to overcome these barriers. Because it is completely web-based, technology requirements are minimal. A simple page of instructions and a brief tutorial is all it takes to administer the CTC. Scoring is accomplished dynamically which reduces the overall cost.
One of the major motivations for developing the CTC is to support educational opportunities for underserved populations. Although these students are a growing segment of our schools, due to low socio-economic status, they are rarely selected for gifted programming through traditional identification methods. The CTC aims to open the doors of gifted programs to a more diversified student population.

Why Measure Creativity?
What are the practical benefits of knowing which students are most creative and in what areas?
Increasingly, across the globe, educators and citizens recognize the urgency for creative solutions to the problems that exist in our society and the need to embed 21st Century Learning Skills into the curriculum for students. There may be no more important task than generating creative ideas and finding creative solutions. Managers do not understand which of their employees have the most potential for creative ideas. Teachers may not know how to recognize students with potential for creativity. Universal screening for creative potential enables more opportunities for creative work in work, schools, and at home.

Dr. Acar is a leader in the field of Creativity Assessment and is the lead researcher of the CTC and he is conducting reliability and validity studies of instrument.
Dr. Cayirdag will also be contributing scientific research and publishing articles on the CTC.
