Self-Esteem Comparisons among Intellectually Gifted Minority/Non-Minority Junior High Students.
Legin-Bucell, Cynthia; And Others
Differences in self-esteem between 48 minority and 62 non-minority intellectually gifted and 75 intellectually average junior-high students were assessed using the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory. Results indicated a higher level of self-esteem for the gifted students than for the control group. Significant differences were also found to exist between males and females, with males exhibiting higher self-esteem scores. Self-esteem was also significantly higher in the non-minority females than for the minority females. Pre-post self-esteem scores were analyzed for seven minority students participating in an academic enrichment program, but no significant differences were found as a result of program participation.
