Self-Concept: A Comparison of Low Socioeconomic, Low Achieving Secondary Students Across Ethnic, Sex and Age Variables.
Grobe, Robert P.; And Others
The self esteem of Anglo, Negro, and Mexican American secondary students was measured using the Self-Esteem Scale (SES). This instrument was administered to 144 students with equal representation from sex, ethnicity, and grade levels (i.e., each of 18 cells contained 8 students). A three-factor analysis of variance revealed a significant main effect for sex, while the ethnic main effect, grade main effect, and all two-way interactions were found to be nonsignificant. These findings suggest that self esteem among ethnic groups does not differ to the extent postulated by some investigators. The absence of any large differences among the groups may possibly be due to inservice efforts directed at making teachers culturally aware. (Author/GC)
