The Effects of a Supplementary Program Designed to Enhance Self-Concept and Need Achievement on Reading Achievement.
White, Hazel Lee
Sixty-eight fifth and sixth graders participated in a study of the relationship between self-concept, need achievement, and reading achievement and of the effects of a supplementary program designed to enhance self-concept and need achievement. The California Reading Test, the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale, the Socio-Cultural Experience Checklist, and the N Achievement Checklist were administered. The students were divided into two groups: the experimental group was taught through the school's adopted reading program and a supplementary program designed to enhance self-concept and need achievement; the control group was exposed only to the school's adopted reading program. Multiple regression analyses indicated that, as measured in this study, need achievement, but not self concept, was a useful predictor of reading achievement. The supplementary program was not shown to be useful in improving reading achievement. (Author/AA)
