I am designing a data collection effort in elementary schools. I got permission to talk to all students in certain ages, and I wish to draw their friendship networks. My IRB restrictions, however, prohibit questions that may cause children to structure their self perception - specifically, my IRB refuses to approve questions such as "is X your friend?". They allow, however, questions like "Have you ever been to X's house?" or "Did you play with X in the past week?". Since many of you are experienced in designing such measures, I'd appreciate some suggestions for such elaborated questions. Naturally, I will edit all comments to a concise document and recirculate to the list.
