ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
The present study examined the social network perceptions of fifth grade rejected students (N = 723). Rejected students were separated into low-, medium-, and high-social prominence subtypes. Cluster analysis was also used to create analytically-derived subtypes of rejected students including the following characteristics: social network centrality, social prominence, aggression, internalizing symptoms, and prosocial behavior. Differences among social prominence tertiles and cluster types were examined for differences in social network perception accuracy, peer association codes, and behavior characteristics of students nominated into groups and the class-wide social network. Notable findings included that sad rejected boys and girls demonstrated awareness of their lack of membership into peer groups. Differences for gender and cluster types for the behavior characteristics of those students with whom they nominate themselves and whom they nominate in their class-wide social cognitive map were noted.
