Social Adjustment and Personality Development in Children.
Roff, Merrill; And Others
This book describes a series of studies included in a 5-year program of research on the social adjustment of school children in the third through sixth grades. The sample consists of a total of 40,000 children from Texas and Minnesota, including a small subsample of 5,000 used in a 4-year longitudinal study. Peer acceptance-rejection scores obtained from pupil's ratings of their classmates and teachers' ratings of the peer status of children in their classes were used as the measures of social adjustment. Family background factors, measures of intelligence, birth order, ethnic group membership, school grades, various personality characteristics, and the resemblance in peer status between ordinary siblings and between twins are among the topics investigated in the studies.
