Özet:Subjects such as design and technology are in Slovenian primary schools based on students' creativity and discovery and consequently by preparing students to participate in the technical field. As we know, the creative ability is a spontaneity of expression and other creative skills, which can be motivated or hindered by the teachers. Through testing we can get to the image of the actual state of the creative abilities of students. Therefore, a special instrumentation and methodology were developed, which could achieve that the test conditions were equal for all participants. The purpose of this study was to examine the state-level of technical creative skills of students with the help of a modelled test of creativity. In the verbal part we valued the originality, flexibility and fluency. In non-verbal part we valued originality, flexibility and elaboration. Each element of technical creativity was evaluated through a detailed criterion and benchmark points. The results, which will be presented in the article confirms that students who express a higher level of creativity are more effective in learning. The survey shows that the creativity of students depends on a number of factors, including sex - girls are more creative than boys, and from age - older people are more creative. Students expressed a low level of overall creativity. We can speak about creativity expressed specifically in this test, which can serve for comparison purposes only, not to describe the overall situation. There can be many reasons, but this can already be the subject of other research and another following study.
