Development of a Measure of Family and Provider/Teacher Relationship Quality (FPTRQ), 2010-2015 | Learn more about this project

The director measure is intended for use with program directors in center-based, family child care, and Head Start/Early Head Start settings for children from birth through five years old. This measure asks respondents general questions about the early childhood education environment, the children enrolled in the program, and how the program supports family and provider/teacher relationships. It includes 57 items and takes about 10 minutes to complete, on average.

The Excel scoring sheet for the director measure (revised April 2015) can be used to automatically calculate scores for the environment and policy checklist in the director measure. It is available in English only.

Additional information on scoring is available in the Family and Provider/Teacher Relationship Quality Measures: Updated User’s Manual.
