Research shows that creativity is one of the characteristics most needed to cope with today’s complex business environment. The Creative Response Evaluation – Work (CRE-W) assists organizations with selection, development, and the building of successful project teams by measuring different types of creative thinking in a business context.
Candidates respond to 12 situation-based, realistic work problems and the CRE-W measures the test taker’s ability to innovate, and reports on how likely they are to use their creative initiative in the workplace.
Three scores are calculated:

Internal Consistency for the US sample was .89 for the Creative Initiative score and .81 for New creative thinking style and .79 for Different creative thinking style. Test-retest coefficient, corrected for range restriction, was .88 for the Creative Initiative score.
Validity against measures of creativity (a measure of divergent thinking, a creative problem-solving task, the Kaufman Domains of Creativity Scale and the Remote Associates Test) is reported in the manual, as well as validity as a personality construct with a small study using the NEO-PI-3 and the Big Five domains. This research presents a pattern of correlations that supports the construct validity of the scores.
