Many measurement tools on creativity are available in the literature. One of these scales is Creativity Fostering Teacher Behaviour Index (CFTIndex) developed for Singaporean teacher originally. It was then translated into Turkish and trialled on teachers in Nigde province with acceptable reliability and factorial validity. The main purpose of this study is to compare the original English and the translated Turkish versions and to explore more flexible use of CFTIndex to facilitate data collection for future research. Factor loadings of English and Turkish versions are found to be highly similar. The original version that consists of 45-item was shortened to 27-item and also grouped into five sets. Correlations with the full-length version show acceptable validity and reliability. All new versions were verified by confirmatory factor analysis. It is concluded that CFTIndex has flexible features and its shorter forms can be used with confidence. It is especially useful when a study entails collecting data for many variables.
