How do the following statements describe your perception of yourself?
I regularly come up with novel uses for things.
I engage in activities that are personally satisfying.
I don't stop listening when I think I know what someone is saying.

The Reisman Diagnostic Creativity Assessment (RDCA) assesses an individual's self-perception on 11 major creativity factors such as originality, flexibility, and divergent thinking that have emerged from the creativity research. Some of the RDCA items are built upon the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT), which in turn stems from Guilford's creativity research. The TTCT remains the most widely used test of creativity and the most referenced of all creativity tests. However, the TTCT must be scored by trained evaluators, takes an hour or longer for administration, focuses on prediction of creative performance rather than providing diagnostic information, and is costly. The RDCA, on the other hand, is automatically scored, takes about 10 minutes to complete, and provides immediate results.

The free RDCA app provides a Likert-type assessment resulting in a self-report designed to be used diagnostically to identify one's creative strengths, rather than to predict creativity. The RDCA results can be used to provide the assessment taker with an instant overall creativity score, as well as scores to identify specific creativity factors in which the taker may already be strong, factors they may be personally satisfied with, and factors the taker may wish to strengthen through creativity exercises.

Coming Soon! The RDCA Creativity App upgrade will provide a detailed individual profile comprised of your responses to each creativity factor and specific creativity exercises that you may wish to engage in to strengthen specific creativity factors.

Great app

Future 215

It is great for self assessment, no bugs or crashes.



This is more a questionnaire than an objective assessment or test.

Doesn't work - not the test, the app closes and disappears


I'm pretty creative, or so I thought, until I figured out that no matter what combination of scores you give to the first two questions, the app just closes and disappears. I wasn't creative enough to fix it. Maybe they can get some kids who scored on the higher side of the paper assessment to re-write this, and actually test it.
