In this paper, we focus on the creative attitude in mathematics as one aspect of mathematical creativity. To measure the creative attitude, we first introduce some prior studies and CAS (Creative Attitude Scale) designed by Noboru Saito in Japan. We develop the CAS-K (Creative Attitude Scale-Korea) including 33 items of 7 factors based on CAS which has 27 items. The factors are fluency, appropriateness, positiveness, independency, concentration, convergency, and accuracy. In CAS-K, it is important to give the information about students' creative attitude for each factor. Thereby, CAS-K can be useful sources of creative attitude to foster mathematical creativity. Rather than the total scores, we emphasize applications and results from CAS-K relating to the 7 factors.
