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:
How I Feel About My School Questionnaire
The HIFAMS questionnaire has been designed to measure the happiness and subjective well-being of children in school. The questionnaire is composed of seven questions which asks children how they feel about school life. The questionnaire is a copyrighted document that may not be modified in any way. However we are happy to provide it free of charge to schools, researchers and practitioners, on the condition that the schools or children who are completing it are not incurring any charge through its completion and that the wording of the questionnaire is not altered in any way.
