The purpose of the present study is to ascertain whether or not the Wallach and Kogan creativity tests are predictive of creative extracurricular achievements in seven-year old children. For this validation, a checklist of creative activities was employed as a criterion. It was compiled by Torrance (1965) and used with third-, fourth-, and fifth-grade pupils. This list contains items pertaining to creative writing and composition, writing and reading, dramatics, life sciences, physical sciences, social studies, arts and crafts, and games.
