Answers:

A. Higher scores indicate higher levels of victimization and aggression
B. One of the major themes found in the comparisons is that in general, victims and bully/victims reported less frequency of perceived social support; however, they placed greater importance on social support than the other groups.
C. Computed by calculating the mean rating for each student: the sum of the peer-nomination ratings for each respondent (a respondent’s self-estimation should be excluded when computing these scores) divided by the total number of respondents present, minus one (the child him/herself). Higher scores in each section indicate more experience with construct being assessed in that section.
D. Farmer’s study showed that two-thirds of aggressive boys and one-half of aggressive girls affiliated in groups whose members were over 50% nonaggressive.
E. Peer-nominated bullies reported a higher-self concept than self-identified bullies.
F. The homophily hypothesis, dominance theory, and attraction theory.
G. Rodkin suggests establishing a buddy system in which at-risk children are paired with another child who can model more skilled social interactions. It is also important that paired friends or "buddies" are capable of serving a protective function (e.g., are physically strong, prosocial) for the victimized child.
H. 1. Role models; 2. strong social skills; 3. validating the popularity of others; 4. admission rules; 5. attracting the opposite sex; 6. posers; 7. power players and dominance by insult
I. The processes (i.e., ostracization, name calling, bullying) through which cliques and peer groups maintain their social boundaries. The jockeying for social power across groups can lead to animosity between distinct groups, even a climate of "open warfare" between opposing groups.
