Sociometric (social measurement) methods are used to assess patterns of attraction and repulsion among members of a social group. Originated by Moreno (1934), these methods include a variety of data collection and analysis techniques that have been developed and widely applied within psychology, particularly with children in school classes and in different age groups.
