Sažetak

The goal of this research was to investigate the difference in
results of prevalence of peer violence when using different measurement approaches (definitional and behavioral) and different
data collecting methods (self-rating, peer rating, peer nomination,
self-nomination). The article presents results from two different
researches on two samples of school-aged children from two
towns in Slavonia. Prevalence of peer violence, in both samples,
was measured by self-rating method based on behavioral approach.
Pupils from the first sample gave self-ratings and peer
ratings of peer violence prevalence, based on definitional approach.
Pupils from the second sample gave peer nomination
and self-nomination of peer violence based on definitional approach.
The results have shown a higher prevalence of peer violence
when using definitional approach and the results were the
same regardless of using peer ratings or self-ratings. Self-ratings
methods based on behavioral approach and peer nomination
based on definitional approach have shown same peer violence
prevalence but a slightly higher prevalence was obtained when
using self-nomination. The study shows that it is necessary to use
multimethod approach when testing the peer violence prevalence.
