    Has anyone administered these tests or seen results or investigated them?

    I think the idea of a pretest situation with students coming into my classes would be an interesting experiment. And possibly including some of my fellow teachers as a professional development.

    Any opinions?

    I don't know much about these, but I'm kind of curious as well, especially on the front with fellow teachers as PD. I had a teacher ask me if I was interviewing someone and had to assess how creative they were, what kind of question would I ask them. I mentioned this video we watched in my grad class.....to list in x amount of minutes all the things you could do to/with a paperclip. lol

    It's an interesting thought. I'm constantly wanting some type of PD that is a bit more interesting or relative to my field, but my district doesn't allow the art teachers any say in our PD.
