The Relationship Among Intellectual Development, Achievement and Self-Concept of Elementary School Minority Children.
Campbell, Richard L.; Martinez-Perez, Luis A.
This report presents the results of a study of the relationship between self concept and academic achievement and between self concept and intellectual development in minority group school children. The subjects were second grade black and Hispanic children in an urban school. The Stanford Achievement Test was used to measure academic achievement in the areas of reading, social studies, science, and listening comprehension. To measure self concept, the Piers Harris Self Concept Scale was administered. Intellectual development was measured using seven Piagetian tasks. The results of the study show a significant correlation between self concept and academic achievement and between self concept and intellectual development. Implications of the results are discussed.
