ARANGUREN, María  y  IRRAZABAL, Natalia. A scale for the evaluation of Creativity Behavior in different domains: development and design. Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.1, pp.29-41. ISSN 1688-4221.

This study focused on the design and preliminar analysis of the psychometric properties of a creativity assessment scale in different areas: literature, music, body language (dance/theater), design/crafts, fine arts, business, architecture/construction, science/technology, and everyday creativity. The exploratory factor analysis (n = 258) rendered 4 factors: F1 Art and Design; F2 literature and music, F3 body language and F4 business. These results indicate good internal consistency of the scale and sub-scales, and also provide evidence of the convergent validity of these with other theoretical constructs such as creative personality, creative self-efficacy and overall self-efficacy. Both the ECC and its subscales showed low correlation, although statistically significant, to the Creative Personality Scale (Gough, 1979), the Creative Self-Efficacy Scale (Yi, Scheithauer, Lin & Schwarzer, 2008) and the Overall Self-Efficacy Scale (Jerusalem & Schwarzer, 1992). Evidence ofcriteria validity for contrasted groups is provided. Statistically significant differences for the overall average scores and the fine arts/design, literature/music and body language subscales when those individuals who pursue an artistic activity are compared whith those who do not. Sex, age and education background differences for the overall scale and the different subscales are reported
