The LVI allows teachers' behaviour (affective references and teaching quality) to be assessed through pupil assessments. The four subscales (1) structure vs. unstructured, (2) severity vs. pupil orientation, (3) high overview (monitoring) vs. low overview of class events, (4) waste of time vs. use of time consist of 10 items each. Reliability: The reliabilities of the four scales (according to Hoyt) range between rtt = .80 and rtt = .88. Validity: There are numerous findings on empirical validity that allow a good classification of the scales. Further proofs of validity are to be mentioned: Correlations with the scales of support and severity by Heinrich (1974), the sensitivity of the LVI in the recording of differences in school types, correlations with affective characteristics of the individual student situation (teacher's sense of well-being, use of the offer, popularity of the subject, difficulty in the subject, cumulative deficits, fear in oral examinations, fear in class tests), numerous significant correlations with school performance, which indicate that the differences in performance between students and school classes are also determined by the factor "teacher". Standards: There is item-specific normalization (25th and 75th percentile rank) and scale-specific normalization (percentile rank norms, T-values and stanine values). The investigation took place in 1978.
