Measuring the Effects of Students' Perceptions of Classroom Social Climate on Academic Self-Concept.
Byer, John L.
This research measured the effects of students' perceptions of classroom social climate in middle school social studies classes on academic self-concept in social studies. The 185 subjects, consisting of 95 females and 90 males, were eighth graders enrolled in U.S. history courses. Students' perceptions of classroom social climate were measured by the involvement subscale and by the affiliation subscale of the Classroom Environment Scale (E. Trickett and R. Moos, 1993). Academic self-concept was measured by the Academic Self Description Questionnaire II (H. Marsh, 1990). Statistically significant (p<.05) relationships were found between students' perceptions of classroom social climate and academic self-concept. Evidence of consistent relationships between students' perceptions of classroom social climate and academic self-concept was increased. Appendixes contain both measures used.
