This kind of device has not available in such condition.  So the investigator decided to construct and standardize the PCK measuring tool for geography teachers. In this paper researchers describe the procedure they have attained in construction and development of a tool to measure the PCK of geography teacher, teaching in Bengali medium school in West Bengal.
