Multivariate Analysis of Self-Perceptions.
Soares, Louise M.; Soares, Anthony T.
In order to refine further the process of measuring self-perceptions, nine different self-scales of the Affective Perception Inventory (API)--descriptive of academic settings--were administered to students in grades one through twelve, their peers, and their teachers. Within a multitrait-multimethod formulation, the scores yielded high internal consistency, convergent validity in some comparisons of Self and Peers, discriminant validity in specific scale-clusters, and a clear differentiation of the lower grades from the upper grades. The results suggest a multidimensional construct of self beginning at an earlier age than previously evidenced. (Author/GK)
