Murphy, Kevin; Schneider, Barry
Journal of Early Adolescence, v14 n1 p66-82 Feb 1994
This study of fifth graders identified 22 behavioral cues to develop and test a peer-report measure of social transactions used to infer liking by peers. Sixteen of the 22 cues described positive behaviors, indicating that positive behaviors may play a more important role in relational communication among children than negative transactions. (TJQ)
