Comparative Self-Esteem of Blacks and Whites in Segregated and Integrated Dyads. Technical Report No. 73-1.
Ruhe, John A.; Hill, Walter
The purpose of the study is to provide information concerning the self esteem of blacks and whites under conditions of integrative and segregative simulated work groups. Subjects were 96 undergraduate students, half black and half white, who performed three laboratory tasks. Ziller's self esteem scales were used to measure the self esteem of subjects. Results indicate a significant difference between the self esteem scores of blacks and whites in the integrated groups. No differences were found between the self esteem scores of blacks in integrated versus segregated groups or between blacks and whites in segregated groups. (Author)
