# Sociometrics

**Abstract:** The *Sociometric* interview assesses peer's perceptions of children in their classroom on a variety of dimensions (Coie, Dodge, & Coppotelli, 1982). The interview is administered individually at school. Children are presented with a roster of all the students in their classroom. They first rate how much they like, or do not like, to play with each child in their classroom. On the 1st and 2nd grade forms, these ratings were made on a 3-point scale; for the 3rd grade form, this was expanded to a 5-point scale. For grade 4, no roster ratings were collected.
Individual items were scored by summing nominations across all children in the classroom. Both raw scores and z scores are available for both types of sociometric scores (unlimited and fixed). The z-scores are standardized within each classroom group. In addition, standardized social preference and social impact items were scored as follows:

- Social Preference: standardized Liked Most - standardized Liked Least (score is then re-standardized)
- Social Impact: standardized Liked Most + standardized Liked Least (score is then re-standardized)
