Abstract

The Social Integration Measure (SIM) was developed and tests on student integrity groups (73 Ss) at the University of Illinois. This new measure has group members rate each other and themselves on items describing behaviors that lead to satisfying interpersonal relationships and a secure sense of self-worth. Special care was taken to increase the relevance of the testing to group goals. The SIM peer ratings showed very satisfactory levels of generalizability, and SIM did not seem to produce any reactivity-of-testing effects.
