ABSTRACT

The aim of the study is to investigate the psychometric characteristics of the “Integrated Creativity Test-Preschooler-ICT-P” (Creative Thinking Ability Domain) for Turkish children. The study included 104 Turkish children aged 4-5 from Sinop city center. The ICT-P (Creative Thinking Ability Section) has language and drawing sub-domains. The language domain consists of imagination, fluency, flexibility and originality factors. The drawing domain consists of continuation & connection, completion, new elements addition, theme, and unconventionality factors. The translation and back translation processes were conducted for the Turkish adaptation of the scale. Expert opinions were obtained for scope, semantic and conceptual equivalence. The validity and reliability analyzes were conducted to determine that the test was successful in fulfilling certain objectives related to the characteristics that fit wanted to measure. For the reliability assessment: To predict the stability of the test, Test-Retest Reliability and Pearson Moments Multiplication Correlation Coefficient were evaluated. For observer reliability, intra-observer consistency and the inter-measure consistency percentage were utilized. For internal consistency Cronbach's alpha reliability coefficient was calculated. For determining the validity of the test, content validity with expert opinions and construct validity with factor analysis were tested. Exploratory Factor Analysis projected that the scale has a two factor structure composed of 11 sub factors. Results of CFA clarified that the scale has a two factor structure. Inner consistency coefficients and test-retest values proved that the test is a reliable measurement tool. The results of the study confirmed that the test can be used in the assessment of the creative thinking ability of 4-5 year-old Turkish children.
