Since its inception, the Torrance test has remained exactly the
same. However, the subscales used in scoring it have gone through several
changes. The test consists of two parts: a verbal form and a figural form. In
the verbal form, participants are asked to complete five activities—all of
which involve looking at pictures—and then responding in writing.
For her research, Kyung-Hee Kim focused on the figural form of the test,
which includes three activities:
• Create a picture
from a jellybean- or pear-shaped object printed on the page.
• Use ten
incomplete figures to make a new picture.
• Make a picture or
several pictures from three pages of lines or circles.
