Group structure

Who are popular within the group, who are excluded from the group? Sometics clarifies the group structure on the basis of specific questions. By using various models (based on the sociogram), the group will subsequently be analyzed.

The result is a clear picture of the overall group cohesion, interrelationships and interactions within the group. Based on the patterns displayed, the group leader can influence the group dynamics and assess the result over time.

So concise and easy to use. Quick results straight away. The 4 questions is what I wanted to collect data from. The results will help with building positive relationships in the class and see what the dynamics are too.

Bernadette Habkouk, St Patrick's, Asquith

I have been using your program over the last year or so, and absolutely love it. It has been an excellent tool that has helped our teachers understand their classroom dynamic and make adjustments to their teaching based on the data the test provides.

Sociogram FAQs

Below, we have gathered answers to some of the most common questions about a sociogram. Explore this section to gain clarity on the concept.

What is a Sociogram?

A sociogram is a visual representation used for analyzing social relations. It captures the structure and patterns of interaction between individual group members and presents this information graphically, often as a chart.

As a result, sociograms highlight the not-so-obvious aspects of a group’s workings. They make it easy for you to understand how individuals relate to each other in a group.

What Does Sociogram Mean: Sociogram Definition

In simple terms, we can define a sociogram as a visual map of an individual's interpersonal relationships in a group setup. This is the most common definition in the field of sociometry (more about the sociometry meaning on this page).

However, like many other concepts, the sociogram meaning changes depending on how the technique is applied.

For instance, teachers value the importance of sociometry in the classroom. It helps them understand group dynamics and the change in interpersonal relationships over time.

That is different from marketing experts or business leaders. They may view sociograms as tools to uncover sociometric status for individuals and, in turn, improve internal and external business processes.

It is also different for other professionals like psychologists and tutors.

In short, a sociogram can mean something different, depending on your situation.

How to Create a Sociogram

To make an effective sociogram, determine the elements you seek to measure with the social network diagram first. It will help you identify the best criteria to follow for the rest of the process.

With clear criteria in mind, you can learn how to make a sociogram manually. The manual process is more time-consuming and better suited to small groups in a controlled social setting.

Alternatively, you can do it automatically using a sociogram app, which makes the process relatively straightforward.

If you choose the manual route, you will need a pen and paper to draw the social connections based on your observations.

You can also manually create social charts by analyzing results from a sociometric questionnaire participants fill out.

Our sociometric techniques methods page has more tips on measuring, collecting, and interpreting your data.

If you go this route, you must know how to properly use a sociogram's components to create accurate layouts of all participants’ social links.

Check our sociogram template to learn more about how all the components come together.

Overall, we recommend using online sociogram maker tools. They are fast, mostly hands-free, and provide more accurate information.
