The geometrical mean is often also called the mean proportional, since the measurement is centered on the set of values of n variables (in our case n=6 variables) expressed by n (6) root of the product of the coefficients of these six variables.
Then, on the basis of the Equation (2), we calculated the coefficient of a qualitative professional pedagogical activity ([C.sub.qpa]) of each teacher of legal disciplines (with the help of the program of statistical analysis SPSS 17.0, we arrived at the indicators of the geometrical mean, which served as an indicator of the quality of professional activity of each teacher) and determined its level.
