Ethnicity and Friendship: The Contrast between Sociometric Research and Fieldwork Observation in Primary School Classrooms.
Denscombe, Martyn; And Others
British Educational Research Journal, v12 n3 p221-35 1986
Investigates two methods of assessing social interactions among different ethnic groups: sociometric testing and protracted ethnographic observation. Highlights inherent limitations of sociometric testing and points to those aspects of inter-pupil contact that are likely to form the basis of teacher's perceptions of students' friendship choices.
