Sociometric Assessment: A Validity Study
Kennedy, Daniel A.
This paper reports a validity study of a sociometric technique described by Barclay. The sample was 103 elementary school children. Sociometric scores were compared against the criterion of adjustment of Referral versus Non-referral to the school counseling service. Data were analyzed by a point biserial r, t tests, and a comparison of percentages of Referred and Non-referred subjects relative to different levels of sociometric status. Each approach to data analysis indicated validity for this sociometric technique. Results were interpreted as supporting the use of Barclay's sociometric technique for the purpose of making assessments of school adjustment in children. (Author/EK)
