Abstract

Children tend to establish more significant social contacts outside of their family when they reach school age. Among those contacts, the ones with their peers in a classroom are usually the most intense and the most important. The affect of the relationship with the peers is great on students' overall development as well as on his motivation, relationship towards school and his social, a.k.a. sociometric status in the classroom. Sociometric status reflects students' acceptance by peers in the classroom. The aim of this study was to compare the academic achievement mean of students who were grouped according to their sociometric status, which was calculated from the data obtained with a sociometric survey, into three status groups: students with the status of popularity (“the class star”), students with the status of average and controversy and students with the status of unpopularity (rejected and isolated). The academic achievement mean was calculated for each status group and the means were mutually compared. The study confirmed that there is a statistically significant difference between academic achievement of students with the status of popularity and students with the status of unpopularity and also that there is a statistically significant difference between academic achievement of students with the status of average and controversy and students with the status of unpopularity.
