ABSTRACT

The propose of this study is to verify the effects about program to improve self-concept, including self-esteem and self-efficacy by Meta-analysis. 75 cases from 30 studies on self-concept was extracted and conducted to examine effect size(Hedges’g) based on Random model. The overall effect size for all studies was 1.796, very positive and effective. The results from analysis according to categorical variables were as follows: First, the effect size of activity-centered program was higher than that of academy-centered program. Second, the effect size of self-concept program for middle school students with learning disabilities was higher than elementary school students. Third, the effect size of program in regular class was higer than in special class. Fourth, the effect size of program by self-esteem measurment was higher than by self-concept measurement. Fifth, the effect size of personal section of self-concept’s subcategories was higher than academic section of those. Sixth, the effect size of true experimental design program was higher than quasi-experimental design program. Seventh, the effect size by program period was not clearly different. Finally, it was discussed about future research directions and suggested more studies on self-concept for students with learning disabilities should be accumulated to generalize effects.
