The purpose of the study was twofold. First it was to investigatethe significant differences that may,exist between seffconcept.rnotiveSon for schoolirig, attitude toward mathematics and readingand actual achievement in mathematics and reading among Angloand Mexican American junior high school students. The secondpurpose was to investigate the relationships that may exist behveththe aforementioned variables.
The sample consisted of 102 seventh, eighth, and ninth gradestudents of a rural school in Southwest Texas. Fitty-four MexicanAmerican and 58 Anglo students participated in the study.Thestudents were administered the Piers-Harris Children's Self-ConceptScale, the Motivation for Schooling Subscalo of the Smith & WickSchool Attitude MeasUre, Suydam-Trueblood Attitude TowardMathematics Scale, and the Askov-Trueblood Attitude TowardReading Scale as measures of self-concept, motivaton for schooling,mathematics attitude, and reading attitude, respectively. Mathematicsand reading achievement scores were obtained from the schooldistrict's yearly administration of the California Achievement Test.
Seven hypotheses are made. Hypothesis 1 dealt with theassumption that no significant differences existed between theMexican American and Anglo students in measures of the sixvariables previously cited. The hypothesis was rejected due to thefinding, by an ANOVA technique, that a significant difference didindeed exist in the mathematics achievement variable. MexicanAmerican students achieved significantly lower than Anglo studentsin mathematics. A conclusion was also reached that MexicanAmerican students indicated no significant differences in their self-
