The main characteristics of information processing taxonomy model consist of retrieving information from external memory and primary and secondary productions of Type A and Type B information. This characteristic becomes the components of different levels of thinking which could be used to confirm and explain the student’s creative thinking. This paper describes the development of a geometry test for assessing mathematical creative thinking based on information processing taxonomy model at different hierarchical levels. The instrument development process followed two phases: instrument formation and instrument validation. Instrument formation consists of a literature review, generating items, evaluating proposed items, and a pilot testing draft. Instrument validation used a statistical method to find the indexes of validity, reliability, difficulty, and discrimination of test items. Results showed that the constructed test instrument consists of 5 items. All of the test items were valid and can be used to analyze mathematical creative thinking.
