Self-concept of Ability and Perceived Evaluation of Others: Cause or Effect of Academic Achievement?
Calsyn, Robert J.; Kenny, David A.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 2, 136-45, Apr 77
The self-enhancement model (that perceived evaluations of others cause self-evaluation of ability, which in turn causes academic achievement) was not supported. However, among females, academic achievement caused both self- and other-evaluations as well as aspirations. The causal patterns did not appear to vary across socioeconomic status level. (Author/MV)
