RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCHOOL SELF-CONCEPT AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
In our article, we are focused on the exploration of the relation between the school self-concept and the academic performance. We assume that positive self-concept is in relation to better school performance. We tested the research hypothesis using data obtained on a sample of 420 pupils of the second grade. We used two research methods: The Self-Description Questionnaire and GPA (Grade Point Average). We can confirm the hypothesis. The results show that promoting pupil's self-concept of pupils improves pupils' performance at school.
