We propose a standardized educational test, developed according to the methodology created by L. Crocker and J. Algina (1986) which aims to diagnose the development level of creative mathematical thinking qualities. The standardized test requires a pre-test, which includes the analysis and ascertainment of the items quality, calculation of the difficulty coefficient and discrimination coefficient for each item. In addition, pre-testing involves the setting of the several qualities of the test - objectivity, applicability, reliability and validity.
