- The Evaluation of Potential Creativity (EPoC 2009) is a new instrument that allows creative giftedness to be measured.

- It includes verbal and graphic sub-tests that measure the two key modes of creative cognition—divergent-exploratory thinking and convergent-integrative thinking—in elementary and middle-school students.

- Easy to use by psychologists and educators, this instrument can, for example, help school psychologists to identify, in regular schools, children with creative potential. .

- Part of the interest in creative potential concerns the detection of children who may benefit from specific educational programs.

- The EPoC system provides opportunities to add additional domains to the assessment (such as the musical domain, currently under development).

- EPoC includes a training program for evaluators to facilitate test use and scoring.

- This instrument is available in five languages, including: French; English; Arabic; Turkish; and German. In the second phase of this project, the instrument will be available in other languages.

- In the Arabian Gulf States, EPoC will be administered only in schools that participated in this training workshop, and teachers belonging to it will be certified by the ICIE.
