Children's Perceptions of Themselves and Their Teacher's Feelings Toward Them Related to Actual Teacher Perceptions and School Achievement.
Gustafson, Richard A.; Owens, Thomas
Children's perceptions of themselves and of their teachers' feelings toward them were correlated in this study with teacher perceptions of the children's self-concepts and with school achievement in an effort to document the relationships among these factors in terms of ethnic group membership (Mexican American and non-Mexican American). Instruments measuring self-concept, cognitive ability, and achievement were administered to 552 students in grades 3 and 6 in 5 urban California schools having more than 50% concentrations of Mexican American students; additionally, these children were assessed by their teachers in the area of self-esteem. Using 3 statistical methods on data obtained, it was determined, for example, that (1) differences between the ethnic categories in self-esteem and academic performance, inconsistent at grade 3, favored the non-Mexican Americans at grade 6 and (2) a consistently lower correlation was found for Mexican Americans at both grades between "How I See Myself" and "How My Teacher Sees Me" than was found for non-Mexican Americans. Ten tables (containing means, standard deviations, intercorrelations, and inter-rater reliabilities), 16 references, and the test instrument "How I See Myself" are appended. (BO)
