The Maslach Burnout Inventory: Educator's Survey, a specialized version of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), was specifically designed for educators including teachers, administrators, staff members, and volunteers working in an educational setting. Focused on individuals’ work environment, this survey assesses emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal accomplishment, including   educators’ feelings about their students, their work, and their successes. Responses to this survey's 22 self-report questions are on a 7-point Likert scale according to the frequency the individual identifies with each statement: For example, “I have accomplished many worthwhile things in this job,” or “I feel emotionally drained from my work” (MBI). It can be completed in 10-15 minutes. It is available in several languages and requires purchase for use.
