Teacher Estimation of Child Peer Status


Designed to estimate teacher’s perception of the subject child’s peer status. The instrument includes 7 items. The first item asks how well liked the child is. The remaining 6 items address the subject child's social skills in relation to other students in the class, and ask how many nominations that child would receive if his/her classmates were asked to nominate a classmate in a given situation (e.g., would like least for play or work partner).
