Description This study aimed to develop a creativity test for the science grade 12th chemistry students. The test includes five factors, i.e. Sensitivity to problem, fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration & redefinition. The developed test administered to grade 12 students in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan (n=80).  The reliability coefficient of this test was estimated at 0.87 by passing through the test-retest method. To calculate the test reliability the same developed test was administered twice to the same group within a proper interval of time. The recorded scores were correlated through SPSS-17. The coefficient value (r-0.87) provided measure of stability. Rubrics are the standardized marking scheme for assessing student outcomes and performances of the assigned task. Therefore, rubrics were used for scoring of items. The entire procedure seized 25 days. The creativity test was also checked by experts. The experts were those who had command over scientific creativity. The analysis was accomplished to substantiate and check on item discrimination, internal consistency, and agreement between scores. The analysis of the data showed adequate reliability and validity.Keywords: Creativity, Scientific Creativity Tests (SCT), Rubrics
