The participants were 371 students from public and private universities. It was used the Inventory of Teaching Practices for Creativity in Higher Education, originally prepared for undergraduate students and adapted to the graduate context. The study also aimed to obtain evidence of internal validity of this instrument. The Inventory was valid to measure a dimensionality of three factors: General, Encouragement of New Ideas, and Interest in Student Learning. The third factor did not present an appropriate level of reliability. The results indicated a positive evaluation of graduate students with respect to their professors, as well as significant differences regarding the students' evaluation considering type of institution and whether student works or not.
