Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (Verbal) Training

The training for the verbal can be taught in one day to individuals who have mastered the figural scoring. All training requires that participants follow-up by scoring practice protocols to reach scoring reliability.


  1. Participants will be given two weeks to score four tests independently and send the scores to the Torrance Center .
  2. Participants' scores will be checked by component. For the verbal, the components are fluency, flexibility, and originality.
  3. 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.
  4. Steps 1-3 will be repeated as necessary to mastery (up to five trials), or arrangements will be made with the individual to receive additional training. We will work with any motivated individual to mastery.
