Self-Report on the Social Skills Rating System: Analysis of Reliability and Validity for an Elementary Sample

Psychology in the Schools, v42 n4 p345-354 Apr 2005
The Social Skills Rating System (SSRS; F.M. Gresham & S.N. Elliott, 1990) is a norm-referenced measure of students' social and problem behaviors. Since its release, much of the published reliability and validity evidence for the SSRS has focused primarily on the Teacher Report Form. The purpose of this study was to explore reliability and validity evidence of scores on the SSRS-Student Elementary Form (SSRS-SEF) for children in Grades 3 to 5. Findings provided support for the use of Total scale as a measure of student social behavior for initial screening purposes; however, evidence for the subscales was not as strong as predicted. Directions for future research regarding reliability and validity of scores from the SSRS-SEF are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
