Abstract:This quantitative, cross-sectional research is set up to explore the reliability and validity of the WCR-test for higher vocational education. 519 Dutch students that attend a creative bachelor participated in this research, that consists of 2 studies. The first study investigates the WCR-test, and reports low reliability and validity. The second study further investigates the validity of the WCR-test and a possible solution to bring the validity and reliability to an acceptable level. It was concluded that different scoring methods and lengthening the tests positively influences reliability, but not to acceptable standards. Moreover, a correlation of sections of the WCR-test and corresponding creativity test (Guilford’s Alternative uses, 1967; RAT, 1968) was not found. However, an explorative factor analysis confirms the presence of the cognitive mental operations Widening, Connecting and Reorganizing in the WCR-test and further underlines the theory of the WCR-model. Further improvements of the WCR-test are discussed.
