Modeling School Violence across Grade Levels in the U.S. Using the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
Yu, Lei
School violence has increasingly captured public attention due to deadly school shootings. Controversy on school violence is demonstrated by a mixed picture of school safety and the lack of consensus on the definition of violence, which makes comparison of findings across studies difficult. This study extended the application of the Rasch model to school violence research using data from the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The results show that school violence occurred at a level much lower than expected. Across all grade levels the most frequently reported type of violence is intimidation or verbal abuse of students and the least frequently reported is physical injury to teachers or staff. The study also found that interpersonal conflict was more prominent at grade 8 than at grade 12. (Contains 3 figures, 4 tables, and 44 references.) (Author/SLD)
