Counselor Confirmation of Middle School Student Self-Reports of Bullying Victimization
Cornell, Dewey; Mehta, Sharmila B.
Professional School Counseling, v14 n4 p261-270 Apr 2011
School counselors frequently use self-report surveys to assess bullying despite little research on their accuracy. In this study, counselor follow-up interviews found that only 24 (56%) of 43 middle school students who self-identified as victims of bullying could be confirmed as actual victims. Other students described peer conflicts that did not constitute bullying, mismarked the survey, or reported previous bullying. Counselor judgments were supported by peer-nomination data and other survey responses indicative of victimization. (Contains 1 table.)
