Aggressive Attitudes Predict Aggressive Behavior in Middle School Students.
McConville, David W.; Cornell, Dewey G.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v11 n3 p179-87 Fall 2003
This prospective study found that self-reported attitudes toward peer aggression among 403 middle school students were both internally consistent and stable over time (7 months). Aggressive attitudes were correlated with four outcome criteria for aggressive behavior: student self-report of peer aggression; peer and teacher nominations of bullying; and school discipline referrals.
