This paper presents a rating scale designed to capture the quality of maternal interaction behaviors. Although this instrument was used in the context of a broader research project, which intended to study maternal determinants of child’s engagement quality, this article will specifically focus methodological decisions concerning the observation of mothers’ interaction behaviours. The Teaching Styles Rating Scale (TSRS) was used to observe interaction behaviours of 120 mothers of toddlers in a free play situation followed by a cleanup instruction. Each dyad was observed in three different times. The examination of underlying dimensions, internal consistency, inter-rater agreement coefficients and temporal consistency data allow us to conclude that TSRS is a useful and adequate measure of Portuguese mothers interaction behaviors in dyadic play situations.
