The provider/teacher measure short form (English version) is intended for early childhood education providers and teachers of children from birth through 5 years old in a center-based, family child care, or Head Start/Early Head Start program. This English version of the short form asks respondents questions about how they work with all parents of children in their care, such as how easy or difficult it is for parents to reach them during the day and how often parents share information about their home life with the provider.  It includes 23 items (including 4 demographic items) and takes about 5 minutes to complete, on average.

The Excel scoring sheet for the English version of the provider/teacher measure short form (revised April 2015) can be used to automatically calculate overall, construct, and subscale scores. 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 short form can be entered into the same Excel scoring sheet for the provider/teacher measure short form.
