A sixteen-item sociometric device was administered to 160 children in Grades K-4 in integrated open classrooms. Four items dealt with each of the following areas of evaluation: Positive Social (PS), Positive Intellectual (PI), Negative Social (NS), and Negative Intellectual (NI). Results indicated that black children selected more black children overall; white children selected more black children on NS and NI items, more white on PS and PI. On PS and PI items, both groups tended to select members of their own race; on NS and NI items, both tended to select black children.
