Age and Gender Differences in Global, Academic, Social, and Athletic Self-Concepts in Academically Talented Students.
Gabelko, Nina Hersch; And Others
This study examined age and gender differences in global, academic, athletic, and social self concepts in a group of 311 middle and high school students (ages 12-18) attending science, mathematics, or computer science classes at a summer program for the academically talented. The self-concept scores were obtained from the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale and the Self-Perception Profile for Adolescents. Factors investigated were athletic competence, scholastic competence, and social competence. Results indicated a significant main effect for gender, but no age effect was found. Males obtained significantly higher scores on global and athletic self-concepts, whereas females obtained significantly higher scores on social self-concept. No differences were found on academic self-concept. Attached tables and graphs illustrate the research data. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/CR)
