Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this research was to investigate factors associated with self-esteem, sex-role, and academic achievement among adolescents. Subjects were high school students ranging from 9th to 10th grade. Three forms were used in this study: the Bem sex-role Inventory, the Coopersmith Self-esteem Inventory (CSEI) and the Attitude toward Achievement Inventory. Results showed that adolescents classified as masculine or androgynous in gender-role orientation were found to have higher self esteem than adolescents classified as feminine or undifferented. Further, the adolescents classified as androgynous and masculine had higher ability in academic achievement as measured by grade point average. The results also revealed that self-esteem and academic achievement have a positively correlation.
