The Adoption of a Self-Esteem Inventory to Assess the Impact of an Arts Based Program on Middle and High School Children.
Assessing the self-esteem of students may be one way to evaluate the effectiveness of educational programs. To study the impact of an art-based program, middle and high school students completed the Self Esteem Inventory as well as intelligence and achievement measures. Results showed that self-esteem mean scores (both pre and post) were well above 50% in all grades. The tenth grade students achieved the largest absolute increase in pre- versus post-esteem means. Students in all grades stayed the same or increased on post-esteem mean scores. No significant differences were found across grades or between sexes. The findings indicate that the major significant predictor variable was the pre-esteem score. (JAC)
