Assessment of Academic Self-Concept in College Students: Validation of a Scale for the Spanish Language.
Ramirez, Maria P.
The translation and adaptation for a Spanish speaking college population of the Academic Self-Concept Scale (ASCS) developed by Reynolds et al. (1980) was studied to report the initial validation results. A total of 485 students in five different colleges in Puerto Rico responded to items in this scale. In addition, information on the academic progress (grade point average), general self-concept, and anxiety levels of the students was obtained. An internal consistency reliability estimate of .94 was obtained for the ASCS-S in this study. Significant positive correlations were obtained between scores on the ASCS-S and grade point average, and general self-concept. These and other data lend support to the reliability and validity of the ASCS-S as a measure of academic self-concept. (Author/PN)
