Adolescent and Adult Self-Concept Retrospective Scale; Self-perception in adolescence; Tennessee self concept scale
The purpose of this study was to investigate the validity of the Adolescent and Adult Self-Concept Retrospective Scale (AASRS) by comparing it to the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale: 2 (TSCS: 2) on a population consisting of fifty-nine college students ranging in age from 18 to 20. The study also examined whether there is a significant correlation between male and female adolescents with regard to self-concept.
Two trained examiners administered the AASRS and the TSCS:2. One examiner administered the AASRS and the other administered the TSCS:2. All fifty-nine students were tested on both tests over a two-week period.
A Pearson Correlation produced supportive and relevant data suggesting that there is a relationship between the AASRS and the TSCS: 2. The relationship between gender and self-concept went unsupported.
