Consistency in Self, Peer, and Teacher Ratings of Student Coping Skills.
Blattstein, Deborah; And Others
Self, peer, and teacher ratings of student coping skills were compared to determine whether there was consistency in judgment across raters or whether assessments were rater-specific. Ratees were 250 Anglo, Black, and Chicano sixth graders from tri-ethnic classes. All raters were rated on the Behavior Rating Scale (BRS) by self, peers, and teacher. Consistency across raters was found in ranking of the three ethnic groups as follows: Anglos, Chicanos, and Blacks. Within ethnicity, there was consensus between self- and teacher-raters for Anglos and Chicanos with peers giving somewhat lower ratings. For Blacks, peers and teachers more closely concurred, but both sets of ratings were substantially lower than Black self-ratings. (Author)
