Quick Reference

An observational field study method used mainly to measure what people in a group think and feel about each other. It uses a given criterion to gain a subjective measure of how members of a group view one another. For example, a question about who was the best player could be asked of each member of a team. The data gathered can be shown diagrammatically on a sociogram and it can be used to reveal who is generally highly thought of, which individuals form mutually supportive and attracted groups, and those who are isolated.
