I like to do it, I'm able, and I know I am: Longitudinal couplings between domain-specific achievement, self-concept, and interest

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Denissen, J.J., N.R. Zarrett, and Jacquelynne S. Eccles. 2007. "I like to do it, I'm able, and I know I am: Longitudinal couplings between domain-specific achievement, self-concept, and interest." Child Development, 78:430-447.

The longitudinal development of the intraindividual coupling between academic achievement, interest, and self-concept of ability (SCA) was analyzed in a sample of approximately 1,000 children between grades 1 and 12 (ages 6-17). Across all calculated indexes, the average level of coupling was positive. Individuals generally felt competent and interested in domains where they achieve well, and were interested in domains where they perceive their personal strengths. The degree of coupling was the highest between interest and SCA and the lowest between interest and achievement. For all indexes, evidence for an increase in coupling across time was found. Female gender was related to a lower level of coupling. There was evidence for a positive effect of conscientiousness on the amount of coupling.
