Correlates of Self-Perception-In-School.
Alberti, Jean M.
This research assessed the relationship between the Self Perception in School (SPS) inventory and academic achievement, school behavior, and popularity of 656 primary-grade children in a suburban district. SPS was found to be significantly correlated with teachers' ratings of children's behavior and with reading achievement for four of the six grade x sex combinations and for the three total [grade] groups; with arithmetic achievement only for boys and for the total groups; but was uncorrelated with a sociometric measure of popularity except for Grade 3 girls and the total Grade 1 and 3 groups. Significant sex and grade effects in mean SPS scores were found. Significant sex effects and a trend toward grade effect in behavior ratings was also observed. Possible explanations for the obtained results are suggested and research needs are pointed out. See TM 000 487 for a report on the development of SPS. (Author/DG)
