Cyber bullying

Cyberbullying  Cyber bullying was measured using Griezel, Finger, Bodkin-Andrews, Craven, and Yeung’s (2012) Revised Adolescent Peer Relations Instrument (RAPRI). The RAPRI is 26 items and measures cyber bullying from both the bully’s and target’s perspectives. Only the 13 items (2 subscales) that measure the bully’s perspective were included. These subscales included visual-based cyber bullying (5 items, e.g., ‘‘In the past year at this school, I used a mobile phone to send other students a video of a student I knew would embarrass them’’) and text-based cyber bullying (8 items, e.g., ‘‘In the past year at this school, I wrote nasty things about a student on a profile page’’). Participants responded using a 6-point format ranging from 1 (never) to 6 (every day). Griezel et al. (2012) report evidence for the structural validity of the scale. In this study, the visual (a = .84, M = 8.93, SD = 4.29) and text (a = .87, M = 11.34,SD = 5.13) cyber bullying subscales performed reliably.
