Abstract : The report is part of a general study of reference measures for cognitive and noncognitive factors. The specific activity that is being reported is the development of 'factor-referenced' tests or 'marker' tests for several cognitive factors related to divergent production (i.e., ability to produce a variety of words, phrases, or ideas in response to stimuli). Part of the development included a field test to improve the items in the tests, to determine the reliabilities of the tests, and to help clarify understanding of these cognitive factors. The results of the field experiment are reported. (Author)
