SSrat: Ssrat, a Program for Two-dimensional Sociometric Status...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


SSrat is a collection of functions for two-dimensional sociometric status determination with rating scales. The theory underlying the program is described in Maassen, Akkermans and Van der Linden (1996). A discussion of the advantages of using ratings for sociometric status classification is given by Maassen, Van der Linden and Akkermans (1997). The basics of the algorithms are described in Maassen and Landsheer (1998). For each person assessed, SSRAT computes probability distributions of the total scores for ‘sympathy’ (S), ‘antipathy’ (A), ‘social preference’ (P) and ‘social impact’ (I), and applies criteria for sociometric status categorization as described in Maassen et al. (1996).
