Self-esteem in adolescence; Reading--Ability testing; Reading--Evaluation


The major problem of this research was to study the relationship which exists between reading success of the adolescent and the individual's estimate of himself and the estimate of his own reading adequacy. The specific objectives of the study involved the attempt to answer the following questions concerning this relationship: (1) Is there positive relationship between reading success and personal estimate of adequacy? (2) Is there positive relationship between low reading achievement and estimate of adequacy? (3) Do good readers have a higher self-concept than poor readers? (4) Does intelligence enter as a factor in self-estimates and estimates of reading adequacy?
