Remote Associates

  • Correct response or no
    • Are there any 'borderline' cases? There are certainly some wrong answers that come up more than others which might be relevant - also possibly how many things they come up with even if they don't get it right?
  • Time of correct response

Category Fluency

  • Number of unique items in the category
  • Semantic relatedness
    • Are we just doing this between one item and the next, or one item and all subsequent items (in some cases there seems to be a delay between seeing something and then coming up with something related, because you are still typing the things you are thinking of
    • Should be more than one measure?
      • How related is this to things you have said previously vs
      • How related is this to things someone else has said previously?
    • This is particularly relevant to the genuine dyad versus playback condition

Alternative Uses

Mostly from:

  • Scoring is comprised of four components:
    • Originality - each response it compared to the total amount of responses from all of the people you gave the test to. Reponses that were given by only 5% of your group are unusual (1 point), responses that were given by only 1% of your group are unique - 2 points). Total all the point. Higher scores indicate creativity
    • Fluency - total. Just add up all the responses. In this example it is 6.
    • Flexibility - or different categories. In this case there are five different categories (weapon and hit sister are from the same general idea of weapon)
    • Elaboration - amount of detail (for Example "a doorstop" = 0 whereas "a door stop to prevent a door slamming shut in a strong wind" = 2 (one for explanation of door slamming, two for further detail about the wind) -
      • How will this work in terms of collaborative elaborations in conversational settings?
