Micro-PIC. A Simple Form of the Profile of Interaction in the Classroom.
Forbes, Joan
The Profile of Interaction in the Classroom (PIC) is a feedback method of interaction analysis, based on the Flanders System, created for supervisors of pre-service and in-service teacher education. The Micro-PIC is an abbreviated simplified form for analysis of shorter periods of interaction, particularly in microteaching. The Micro-PIC compresses the first three Flanders categories into one, and also combines categories six and seven. Each category is tallied in a separate column, using the Flanders 3-second rhythm. The Micro-PIC is most useful when the only information required is the ratio of indirect to direct teacher behavior, the ratio of student to teacher talk, or the ratio of self-initiated to response-to-teacher student behavior. When it is necessary to differentiate between the different types of indirect or direct behavior, it would be best to use the PIC; when the sequence of events is of primary importance, the traditional Flanders system is best.
