The purpose of this research is to make a psychometrically sound and valid test of musical abilities for students of primary teacher education studies, based on the method of musical abilities testing most commonly conducted by music educators in Croatia and region, but lacking objectivity and reliability. The goal of the research is to create a Test of Musical Abilities (TMA) and determine its psychometric properties. The research was conducted with 105 students of teacher studies at the Faculty of Education in University of Osijek, Croatia. Validity of TMA was confirmed through content analysis and factor analysis. TMA has good internal consistency (α=0.94) and significant coefficient of reliability (r=0.96) and it meets the criteria of discrimination, objectivity and normativity, therefore it has been estimated as a reliable measurement instrument. It has been shown that TMA has a great number of characteristics of a good test with a potential ability to predict the achievement in musical tasks, thus being suitable for use as an entrance exam to the faculties of education in Croatia and the region with the same or similar musical idiom.
