An Exploratory Study of Face-to-Face and Cyberbullying in Sixth Grade Students
Accordino, Denise B.; Accordino, Michael P.
American Secondary Education, v40 n1 p14-30 Fall 2011
In a pilot study, sixth grade students (N = 124) completed a questionnaire assessing students' experience with bullying and cyberbullying, demographic information, quality of parent-child relationship, and ways they have dealt with bullying/cyberbullying in the past. Two multiple regression analyses were conducted. The multiple regression analysis of the number of times in their lifetime that students were bullied yielded an R2 of 0.18 and two significant predictors. Telling a parent when a victim of bullying was related to an increase in bullying, and having a history of bullying others was associated with a significantly higher rate of being bullied. The analysis of being cyberbullied in one's lifetime revealed an R2 of 0.29 and three significant predictors. Students with close parental relationships were bullied less often, internet chat/social network frequency was positively associated with an increase in being cyberbullied, and students who participated in cyberbullying were cyberbullied more often.
