RELATIONSHIP OF SELF-CONCEPT TO ACHIEVEMENT IN HIGH SCHOOL, FINAL REPORT. SELF-CONCEPT AND SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT, III.
BROOKOVER, WILBUR B.; AND OTHERS
THIS RESEARCH ON THE RELATIONSHIP OF SELF-CONCEPT OF ABILITY TO ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN HIGH SCHOOL WAS BASED ON THE THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK COMMONLY IDENTIFIED AS THE SYMBOLIC INTERACTIONAL THEORY OF BEHAVIOR. THE BASIC POSTULATE WAS THAT ACADEMIC BEHAVIOR OR SCHOOL LEARNING IS LIMITED BY THE STUDENT'S SELF-CONCEPT OF HIS ABILITY, AND THAT SELF-CONCEPT RESULTS FROM THE EXPECTATIONS AND EVALUATIONS HELD BY SIGNIFICANT OTHERS AS PERCEIVED BY THE STUDENT. THE RESEARCH PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO TEST HYPOTHESES DERIVED FROM THIS THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK. THIS REPORT REPRESENTS THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF REPORTS FROM THE SELF-CONCEPT OF ACADEMIC ABILITY RESEARCH PROGRAM AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY. THE FIRST TWO REPORTS ARE ED 002 946 AND ED 003 294. PART 1 OF THIS VOLUME DEALT WITH THE TESTING OF SEVERAL HYPOTHESES BASIC TO THE SYMBOLIC INTERACTIONAL THEORY OF SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT. PART 2 CONTAINED SUMMARIES OF 11 STUDIES BASED ON THE LARGER PROJECT OR CLOSELY RELATED TO IT. (GD)
