Description The relationship of various measures of high school performance and a measure of the self- concept were examined for the 1970-71 senior male students at Intermountain School, Brigham City, all. Some significant correlations were found. Their junior year vocational training grade and grade point average were found to be significantly correlated to their self-definition score, as were all but one of the teachers' subjective evaluations. General aptitude, reading ability, previous years at Intermountain, and class grouping were not found to show any significant correlation with the self-definition test score. Age was found to be correlated at the .01 level with the younger students having the higher self-definition scores. This is an exploratory study developed and designed to examine how a Navajo student perceives himself and to examine his self-definition in relation to educational factors. This study will identify those educational factors which can most closely be shown to relate to the student's self-concept and his acceptance of self. The study will also gather the required data to lead to a more conclusive longitudinal study between these students' self-concept and their vocational success after completion of high school. This suggested study should occur five years or more after their graduation from high school
