Perceptions of Inclusion Questionnaire (PIQ)

The Perceptions of Inclusion Questionnaire (PIQ) is a reliable, valid and very economical method to capture the emotional, social and competence-based relatedness - as central dimensions of inclusion - of students in 3rd to 9th grade. 

The PIQ comprises 12 items and exists in three versions : one for students, one for parents and one for teachers. The questionnaire was developed by Venetz, Zurbriggen and Eckhart (2014) and is a short version of the German “Questionnaire for assessing dimensions of integration of students" (Fragebogen zur Erfassung von Dimensionen der Integration von Schülern; FDI) by Haeberlin, Moser, Bless and Klaghofer (1989).
