Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT) Training - Verbal

Friday, Jul. 20 2018, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Torrance Center offers training on the administration, scoring, and interpretation of the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking, Verbal. Efficient, effective, expert, up-to-date training by the Torrance Center assures all motivated learners will receive a certificate of scoring reliability from the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development.


The training for the Verbal requires previous training in the Figural and one day of active training. All training requires that participant's follow-up by scoring practice protocols to reach scoring reliability.


  • Participants will be given two weeks to score four tests independently and send the scores to the Torrance Center.
  • Participants' scores will be checked by component. For the verbal, that is fluency, originality, and flexibility.
  • 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.
  • Steps 1-3 will be repeated as necessary to reach 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 reach mastery.


When individuals reach mastery, they will be issued a personalized certificate of proficiency by the Torrance Center of the University of Georgia.
