Title: Harter's self-perception profile for children adapted for use with young portuguese students
Issue Date: 2001
Abstract: This study of 260 Portuguese early adolescents (Grades 5 to 7; 11-14 years old) used a questionnaire which taps six different domains and was devised by Harter to evaluate the self-concepts of children and early adolescents in Grades 3 to 7. The Portuguese version has Cronbach coefficients alpha between .25 and .80. The results of factor analysis and correlational studies evidence a low differentiation of the dimensions of self-concept. Results of differential studies by sex and school grade indicate girls sec themselves as better behaved than do toys and boys see themselves as significantly more athletically competent than do girls. Also, fifth graders see themselves as more competent in live domains ol self-concept than do seventh graders.
