The Ability/Performance Dimension of Self-Esteem: Implications for Women's Achievement Behavior.
Stake, Jayne E.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v3 n4 p365-77 Sum 1979
The Performance-Self-Esteem Scale (PSES) was developed to tap self-evaluations of ability and performance. Evidence from samples of undergraduates indicate that the PSES measures a separate, distinct dimension of self-esteem. Undergraduate males scored higher than women. Implications for research related to women's achievement-related behaviors are considered. (Author)
