The aims of this action research were to investigate the ways of using creative problem solving learning model for developing gifted students’ collaborative problem solving competency and to examine the effects of using creative problem solving learning model on gifted students’ collaborative problem solving competency on stoichiometry. The target groups were 35 science gifted students studied in one of the schools in the north of Thailand. In this research, classroom action research was employed. As thus, a PAOR cycle was run for three continuous research cycles. Researcher taught by using learning management plan. The research instruments used were learning management plans, the field note record after learning, the students’ reflection, the collaborative problem solving competency observation form, and the collaborative problem solving competency test. For data analysis, content analysis technique was used along with triangulation for qualitative data. In addition, statistics such as average and percentage was used for analysis quantitative data. The result reveals that after the learning activities in each research cycle, student changed their problem solving behavior with members to the best collaborative way. It was found that after learning all cycles, the students’ competency has reached 97 %, which is indicated at the high level. It was found that the ways of this learning model from developed are consists of six steps as follows: engaging, knowledge exploring, problem understanding, solutions creating, preparing for action, and approach for solving the problem, presentation, debating, and improving. Each step in this model must focus on student solving the problem to successful with group activities.
