PIP for
Teachers is intended specifically for classroom teachers, but may be useful to
anyone who is in a student/teacher relationship with someone else.  The traits, qualities, and principles reflect
“good teaching” regardless of the setting or situation.




The
thirty-four statements are also a useful guide for parents or others who are
interested in evaluating a specific teacher.




Teachers may
develop a “teaching quotient” for themselves by reading each of the thirty-four
statements.  Using the same rating system
used earlier, decide if the statement is, for you, almost always true ,
usually true , sometimes true , seldom true , or never true .




Place your
rating in the blank at the left of the statement.  Once you have completed this process for all
thirty-four statements, add together your ratings for all thirty-four
statements and divide the total by thirty-four. 
This will give you your teaching quotient on a scale from 5 to 1.




Since
teachers are intimately involved in the lives of their students and clearly
responsible for the education of those students, your teaching quotient goal
should be at least 4.5.
