The purpose of the study was to explore the relation between fifth- through eighth-grade children's 1980 social competence (interpersonal understanding, peer acceptance, and parent-rated problems concerning social skills) and their 1976 performance on tasks of social cognition (cognitive perspective taking, peer description, and causal attribution). Significant relations were obtained between the 1976 peer description and causal attribution scores and the 1980 parent ratings of social skills problems. Results provide some support for the use of social-cognitive assessments as screening devices for children's later interpersonal difficulties.
