The aim of this research is to analyse the relationship between creativity and the self-efficacy beliefs of preservice woman teachers in material design. The study group involves 219 women preservice teachers who obtain education in preschool teaching through the 2017–2018 school year. The creativity scale aiming to find out “How creative are you” and developed by Çoban [1] was used. The “Material design self-efficacy beliefs scale” developed by Bakaç and Özen [2] was used to determine material design oriented self-efficacy. The collected data were processed by using the statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS 24.0) and structural equation modelling software AMOS 24.0. Normality of distribution of preservice teachers’ data created from the questionnaires of “How creative are you” and “Material design self-efficacy beliefs scales” were processed and examined through Kolmogorov-Smirnov’s, Shapiro-Wilks tests, QQ plot and coefficient of Skewness-Kurtosis. Correlations between creativity and material design self-efficacy beliefs scales were examined with Pearson correlation analysis.

The AMOS allows to determine the creativity effect towards material design self-efficacy beliefs scale by using the structural equation modelling. The positive relationship between the creativity of preschool teaching preservice teachers and their self-efficacy belief level was determined.
