Points of view

* I would challenge the view that testing for creativity involves simply asking children to come up with as many uses as possible for a brick (TES, February 27). This is just one item in a demanding two-hour battery of verbal and figural measures which have been validated by a 40-year study.

At The Creativity Centre we use a variety of measures and methodologies.
