The purpose of this study was to determine if a correlation exists between the academic self-concept of placed ninth grade students and their perceptions of demographic and school related factors in a metropolitan Atlanta school. Ninth grade students classified as placed are those that did not meet the proficiency standard as measured by the eighth grade Georgia Criterion Reference Competency Tests (CRCT) but were still promoted (placed) to the ninth grade. Academic self-concept was measured by student perception data. Surveys were administered to 158 placed ninth grade students during the 2008-2009 school year. The independent variables wereDemographic: age, parent quality, socioeconomic status and gender, and School-Related: teacher methodology, student absence, in-school suspension, out-of-school suspension, learner disposition, and class climate.
