The contribution presents the results of development and approbation of a questionnaire designed for evaluation of inclination toward pedagogical improvisation and self-evaluation of experience among teachers and students. Two factors which are interpreted as self-evaluation of inclination toward pedagogical improvisation and self-evaluation of experience were identified on the basis of factor analysis of the questionnaire’s first edition. Sufficient one stage reliability (coherence) of identified scales is demonstrated. Questions of criterion and construct validity of the questionnaire are discussed.
Keywords: teachers, students, pedagogical thinking, pedagogical improvisation, professional experience
