Early Entrance to College and Self-Concept: Comparisons across the First Semester of Enrollment

Journal of Advanced Academics, v21 n1 p40-57 Fall 2009
This study compared self-report ratings of self-concept before and after the first semester of college among a group of 21 early entrance college students. Results indicated that students maintained their overall level of self-concept following their first semester of college. Mild increases in self-concept were noted in the domains of Physical Appearance and Attributes, as well as Happiness and Satisfaction. These findings concur with previous research, suggesting that academic acceleration for gifted students is not related to decreases in self-concept. (Contains 4 tables.)
