Abstract

Creative thinking is one of the skills that must be mastered by students in the 21st Century. Some students fail and do not proficient in computer programming because they have low creative thinking skills. One of the computer programming learning to increase creativity is digital storytelling. The most commonly used measurement of creativity is the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking - Figural (TTCT-F), which consists of fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. The problem faced when using TTCT-F is that it requires a long time and high subjectivity, the measurement results therefore are inconsistent. This study proposes the validation process exploiting Rasch model of automatic assessment tools to measure student creativity. Discriminant validity likely exists between computational thinking and creative thinking. Values of fit indices are in the range between 0.92 and 1.22 for Infit MNSQ and between 0.93 and 1.12 for Outfit MNSQ. These mean that the items are homogeneous with other items in a measurement scale. The Range of logit measurement of creative thinking reveal the data is slightly skewed with respect to person ability. Item difficulties for the easiest item is originality scales and the most difficult item is elaboration scales.
