Abstract or Summary
  • The relationship between self-concept and teacher competency was examined among 29 female college students enrolled in a beginning-level practicum of a preschool-teacher training program. The Tennessee Self Concept Scale (TSCS) and the Preschool Teacher Competency Rating Scale (PTCRS) were used to assess the subjects' self-concepts and teacher competencies at the end of their training practicums. Results obtained did not support the theoretical proposition derived from self theory that self-concept and teacher competency among the subjects would be positively related. They also failed to provide data in support of the construct validity of the PTCRS. Only 4 of the 90 correlation coefficients expressing the relationship between self-concept and teacher competency calculated reached statistical significance (p < .05). However, they were negative in direction. In addition, further analyses of data revealed no significant differences between the teacher competency scores of subjects in high and low self-concept groups. Discussion of results focused on explaining why such results may have been obtained, limitations encountered in this study, and suggestions for future research.
