Self-Concept Research

Self-concept is the belief that people have about themselves. It is the personal knowledge of knowing who we are and considering all our feelings and thoughts about ourselves academically, socially and physically. I’m particularly interest in the development of self-concept during childhood and adolescence and how such development influences achievement-related outcomes.
