Academic Self-Concept

Academic Self-Concept

an individual’s evaluation of his or her success in academic or educational studies. The two aspects of this evaluation are (a) a general academic self-concept in which students assess their overall learning skills and performance; and (b) a specific academic self-concept of their prowess in such specific subjects as mathematics, social science, or language studies. A major consideration for any individual is whether a positive self-concept is an aid to academic achievement. Another consideration is whether academic achievement, in itself, enhances a positive self-concept.
