Abstract: With the increasing need to assess affect in science, we modified a psychometrically validated curiosity scale for adults. By eliminating questions that were not appropriate for youth as well as reducing the reading level, we prepared an initial document with a reading level of approximately 3rd grade and containing 17 questions that is shorter and easier to administer. The Creativity in Learning Environments scale has been validated psychometrically using factor analysis. Future work intends to create a structural equation model to further elucidate the relationships between the three factors.
