What does the PIQ measure?
The Perceptions of Inclusion Questionnaire (PIQ) is a very reliable short questionnaire that measures three dimensions of inclusion of students in 3rd to 8th Grade (8- to 16-year-olds). All versions of the PIQ are composed of 12 items, with four items in each of the three subscales:
1) Social Inclusion (4 items)
2) Emotional Inclusion (4 items)
3) Academic Self-concept (4items).
The PIQ exist as a self-report scale for students, as well as a version that is filled out by parents or teachers. The scales may be used by researchers or pedagogues to estimate the student’s inclusion. The PIQ exists in many languages.
