The provider/teacher measure (English version) is intended for early childhood education providers and teachers of children from birth through five years old in a center-based, family child care, or Head Start/Early Head Start program. This English version of the measure asks respondents general questions about how they work with parents of children in their care.  It includes 64 items (including four demographic items) and takes about 10 minutes to complete, on average.

The Excel scoring sheet for the English version of the provider/teacher measure can be used to automatically calculate overall, construct, and subscale scores in the provider/teacher measure. Additional information on scoring is available in Chapter 5 of the Family and Provider/Teacher Relationship Quality Measures: User’s Manual.

The Excel scoring sheet for the provider/teacher measure (revised April 2015) can be used to automatically calculate overall, construct, and subscale scores in the provider/teacher measure. It is available in English and Spanish. The English and Spanish versions of the Excel scoring sheet are exactly the same, with the exception of the language of the question stem. Both English and Spanish versions of the provider/teacher measure can be entered into the same Excel scoring sheet for the provider/teacher measure.

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