Introduction: The progress and development of any society depends on the quality of its education and quality of education in turn depends on many factors such as classroom management. The purpose of this study was to predicting of students creativity and academic engagement in University of Kashan based on classroom management components.
Methods: This is an analytic, cross- sectional study. Statistical population consisted of all  students at University of Kashan in academic years 2020-2021 (N=7836) that by Cochran formulate and stratified random sampling 328 ones, selected as sample. In order to collect data, three questionnaires of classroom management, creativity and academic engagement were used. The questionnaires validity was confirmed as content. By using Cronbach Alpha Cofficient, the reliability of class management questionnaire was estimated to be 0.82, creativity 0.75 and academic engagement 0.76. Data analysis is done in levels of descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean & standard deviason) and inferential (one sample t-test & linear regression) through Spss.
Results: The findings showed that the mean of classroom management (53.77±8.04) was lower than the cut-off point of 62.5, the mean of students 'creativity (2.28±0.48) was lower than the average 3 and the mean of students' academic engagement (36.47±7.30) is lower than the cut point 45. Regression coefficients showed that among the components of classroom management, components of education management and behavior management are two factors affecting academic engagement, but the component of  managing individuals did not have a significant effect on academic engagement. Also managing individuals and behavior management are two factors affecting students' creativity, but the component of education management did not have a significant effect on creativity (P<0.05).
Conclusions: According to the research results, the situation of classroom management, academic engagement and creativity of students is in a relatively unfavorable situation and the level of creativity and academic engagement of students can be predicted from the classroom management components. Thus faculty members in universities can promote students' creativity and academic engagement by using cultural-educational, educational, research and service indicators.
