The Torrance Center offers training on the administration, scoring and interpretation of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, VERBAL. Efficient, effective, expert, up-to-date training by the Torrance Center assures all motivated learners will receive a certificate of scoring reliability from the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development.Training: The training for the Figural requires about two days of active training. All training requires that participants follow-up by scoring practice protocols to reach scoring reliability. Trainings are held periodically at UGA, but on-site trainings can also be arranged.Follow-up: Participants will be given two weeks to score four tests independently and send the scores to the Torrance Center. Participants’ scores will be checked by component. For the Figural, that is fluency, originality, abstractness of titles, resistance to closure, elaboration and the checklist. For the verbal, the components are fluency, flexibility and originality. Individuals will receive feedback about which scores were accurate and which were not and need rescoring along with another set of four tests for those who must rescore some components. Trainees will only score the components that they missed on the first set. Steps 1-3 will be repeated as necessary to mastery (up to 5 trials), or arrangements will be made with the individual to receive additional training. We will work with any motivated individual to mastery.Certificate: When individuals reach mastery, they will be issued a personalized certificate of proficiency by the Torrance Center of UGA.
