- This article utilizes social network method to analyze the relationships among middle school classmates of several classes in Wuxi, Jiangsu. Software including UCINET and NetDraw generates designated number of cohesive subgroups within the classes and the process of subgroup division and development is studied. With Girvan-Newman Algorithm, q-value of each subgroup is calculated and confirmed by each class teacher’s feedback on the characteristics of each subgroup. Parameters including Degree, EcCentricity, Closeness and Betweenness of key individuals calculated by software Cytoscape prove to largely correspond with the description of the class teachers.
