Abstract

Constructed the Children's Self-Efficacy for Peer Interaction Scale (CSPI) and administered it to 245 3rd-5th graders along with the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale and the Teacher Rating Scale of Social Efficacy. Analyses of reliability and construct validity indicated that the CSPI has psychometric properties that warrant its use. Ss' self-efficacy varied by grade and situation. The usefulness of the CSPI for research on children's social development is discussed. (24 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
