Lewis, Joan D.; Knight, Harold V.
Gifted Child Quarterly, v44 n1 p45-53 Win 2000
The Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale was used to investigate the self-concept of 368 intellectually gifted children (grades 4-12). Significant gender differences were observed on three subscales: (1) behavior; (2) intellectual and school status; and (3) anxiety. Students in junior high school reported lower self-concept than did students in elementary or high school. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
