An Assessment of the Validity of a Self-Scored Creativity Test

We assessed the Purdue Creativity test’s self-scoring system by comparing self-scores of 92 AP Psychology students to the scores given by a panel of the student’s peers. We found that there was, on average, a 7.08% exaggeration of self-score as well as a positive correlation between self-scores and that exaggeration.
