Marsh, Herbert W.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v81 n3 p417-30 Sep 1989
This analysis of 12,266 responses to the 3 Self-Description Questionnaires (which measure dimensions of self-concept in preadolescence) examined age and sex effects during preadolescence and early adulthood and alternative operationalizations of the proposition that self-concept becomes more differentiated with age. Well-defined factor structures were generated. (TJH)
