Abstract

The reported prevalence rates of cyber victimisation experiences and cyber bullying behaviours vary. Part of this variation is likely due to the diverse definitions and operationalisations of the constructs adopted in previous research and the lack of psychometrically robust measures. Through two studies, the current research developed (Study 1) and evaluated (Study 2) the cyber victimisation experiences and cyber bullying behaviours scales. In Study 1 393 (122 male, 171 female), and in Study 2 345 (153 male and 192 female), 11- to 15-year-olds completed measures of cyber victimisation experiences, cyber bullying behaviours, face-to-face victimisation experiences, face-to-face bullying behaviours, and social desirability. The three factor cyber victimisation experiences scale comprised: threat, shared images, and personal attack. The three factor cyber bullying behaviours scale comprised: sharing images, gossip, and personal attack. Both scales demonstrated acceptable internal consistency and convergent validity.
