Emotional and creative competences are key for life and are acquired in contact with socialization agents. Emotional competences assessment is better done from a multidimensional 360 degree evaluation model. This study analyses the psychometric qualities of an instrument based on this model to assess students’ emotional and creative competences by their teachers. In this study 230 Primary school teachers valued 2,540 public school’s children in the Canary Islands. Factor validity was checked and factor structure was replicated in the main sample and the two sub-samples analysed. A high internal consistency was observed in this instrument. The study substantiates this as a rigorous instrument for teachers to asses their students’ emotional and creative competences in an easy, reliable, and valid way, and which is further adapted to the school reality.
