Chemistry is a subject that contains a lot of abstract, complex and difficult understanding the concepts. Teachers prefer the easy and traditional method in teaching cause students memorize the facts without truly understanding. The purpose of this research is to examine effectiveness of Creative Chemistry Learning Courseware (CCLC) with ICT aid to improve creativity of students in learning Mole topic, form Four Chemistry. The quasi-experiments design with pretest, posttest nonequivalent group design is chosen in research. Control group (n=258) is using traditional method while experimental group (n=262) is using CCLC which utilizing ICT functions. Creativity of students is measured by using TTCT tests and achievement of students is measured by Chemistry tests. Data analyzed by dependent t-test, independent t-test and Pearson Correlation. Data analysis shows both group allocated in medium creativity level however the experimental group scores higher creativity mean score in posttest TTCT. The effectiveness of CCLC convinced as there is significant different in the gain of creativity scores between two groups (t (258) = -7.855, p = 0.00). After exposed to CCLC software, students can understand the abstract concepts in Mole topic with think creatively hence increase their level of creativity. When students apply knowledge and creative thinking ability into Chemistry test more effectively, thus there is significant Improvement in their performance in posttest compare to pretest. Therefore, there is significant relationship between creativity and academic achievement with Pearson correlation value r (262)= 0.713, d< 0.01. When the level of creativity increased, the achievement of students will be increased. Overall, students able to think more creatively after utilizing CCLC software with ICT aids and thus increase their achievement in Chemistry test.
