ARTAVIA GRANADOS, Jenny María  and  ARAYA ALPIZAR, Carlomagno. Statistical analysis of the perception that children have in Basic General Education of school violent behaviors. Rev. Actual. Investig. Educ [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp.1-24. ISSN 1409-4703.

This article is product of a mixed research done in 2015, it aimed to examine whether in games and social interactions that take place during the school recess, students of I and II cycle of the General Basic Education in a school of the Western Regional Bureau of Education, there are violent behaviors. In the development of this study, it was intended to identify the degree of perception of the subjects and then conduct a comparative analysis of the perception of the violence that they have, from sex and school variables. As part of the results of the study, it was found that there are no statistically significant differences among the averages of rate of violence perceived by girls and boys. In addition, sixth grade students are those who have a lower average rate, this could indicate that the older they become, they tend to accept behaviors or violent actions as valid or to consider that they are "normal", "non-aggressive" actions. Another situation observed in the study is that children of third and fourth grades have the highest average of rate of violence (9.1), this implies that they are the ones that detect, with greater clarity, when a classmate action is violent.
