In this paper, we present the results of an experiment investigating how the results of a figural creativity test are affected when paper and pen or tablet PC and stylus are used to test participants. The results show no effect of the testing method on creativity scores obtained by participants. The results indicate that the differences between computerized and paper-based figural creativity tests noticed by previous research might be limited to the influence of User Interface artifacts used. That implies that creativity testing can be introduced to a variety of stylus based computer devices with insignificant influence of the transition from regular pen and paper to screen and stylus as a computer input device.
