Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n3 p416-43 Jul 2001
Examined cross-informant concordance, temporal stability, and reliability of sociometrics in 84 preschoolers. Found that parallel forms of teacher and peer sociometrics measured overlapping and unique aspects of popularity. Teacher-measured popularity was highly stable over 8 weeks; peer-measured popularity showed lower stability. Both teacher and peer sociometrics showed high reliability. Child age and classroom participation did not alter modeled relationships. (Author/KB)
