This study developed the Scientific Imagination Test-Figural (SIT-Figural) for 5th and 6th graders on the basis of the scientific imagination process. A total of 1,256 students who completed the SIT-Figural constituted Sample 1 (n = 558) and Sample 2 (n = 698). The SIT-Figural, which was designed to measure the students’ scientific imagination, comprised four tasks, A, B, C, and D–which covered three dimensions of the scientific imagination process, namely brainstorming, association, and transformation (or elaboration). The Rasch partial credit model was used to assess the model–data fit. A differential item functioning analysis was conducted to assess the consistency of the ratings provided by male and female students. The results revealed that the three dimensions of the SIT-Figural exhibited an acceptable model–data fit. The three subtests had person separate reliabilities of .88, .88, and .87. Finally, suggestions for future revisions and applications of the SIT-Figural have been proposed in this paper.
