A reciprocal model relating self esteem and mathematics achievement. (English)
Zaslavsky, Orit, 23. Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME-23). Vol. 2. ,. 201-208 (1999).
In this study we developed a model relating general self-esteem and mathematics achievement through basic intervening variables supported by social cognitive theory. A structural equation model was developed to examine the paths from mathematics achievement to general self-esteem and vice versa through mediating variables. The data, collected from 308 preservice primary school teachers, provided a good fit to the developed model, indicating an indirect reciprocal causal relationship between self-esteem and mathematics achievement.
