The present study investigated the psychometric properties of a Greek translation of the Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction Primary (G-QTIP). A sample of 273 primary school students from 17 Grade 5 and 6 classes in Cyprus public schools, as well as their teachers, participated in the study. Students completed a self-report questionnaire consisting of demographic questions and the G-QTIP. Teachers also rated students' academic achievement in language and mathematics. The study also investigated the effects of students' demographics and academic achievement on their perceptions. Confirmatory factor analysis supported the a priori structure of the instrument, but with a reduced number of items and with the removal of the Uncertain scale. In general, the G-QTIP is valid and reliable for use in Greek-speaking contexts.
