This computer program will classify students' social status according to the criteria of Coie, Dodge, and Coppotelli (Developmental Psychology, 18(4), 557-570, 1982). The program requires the user to tally the number of times each student in the class was nominated "liked most" (LM) and "liked least" (LL). These LM and LL scores are used to identify students in one of five social status groups: (a) popular, (b) rejected, (c) neglected, (d) controversial, and (e) average. Research on these social groupings is discussed. The program accepts input from the computer keyboard and produces output on the computer screen and a printer.
