I am conducting research into the success of student/supervisor

measure students perceptions of the type of INTERPERSONAL

I am particularly interested in determining degree of empathy,
active idea generation, creativity . . . .etc.

Is anyone aware of a valid and reliable instrument/questionnaire/ . . .

I don't know of any such measure. But, you might look at Leslie Baxter's
chapter entitled "Dyadic personal relationships: Measurement options" in
Tardy, C. (1988). A handbook for the study of human communication. Ablex.

There are some related chapters in that handbook that might also be useful.
