The Pupil Behaviour Questionnaire; a measure of behaviour in the classroom for primary / elementary school children
Current behaviour assessment tools are either too lengthy and/or do not focus school based behaviours. This lead to the development of the Pupil Behaviour Questionnaire (PBQ) which measures low level disruption in the classroom for primary school pupils. Due to the questionnaires brevity, it is feasible for teachers and teaching professionals to complete one on each child in their class as well as to use them to monitor the impact of behaviour management plans with individual children.
We have tested the validity and reliability by comparing it to the already extensively validated Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) using data collected about children aged 4-9 years old across 80 schools in South West England. Results available on request from the author.
The questionnaire is freely available to download from here:
