Abstract: This study seeks to add to the current literature that examines the construct and concurrent validity of the academic self-concept measure, Dimensions of Self-Concept (Form H), for college level students. By utilizing a sample of 429 undergraduate and graduate students from across the United States, this study provides supplemental information previously unavailable through the use of community college populations or small undergraduate populations. This investigation had four purposes: (1) to investigate the construct or factorial validity of the Dimensions of Self-Concept (Form H) for college students, (2) to examine the concurrent validity of the DOSC (Form H) with self-reported cumulative grade point average, 3) to determine if there would be significant gender, racial, age, or academic classification group differences at the college level and (4) to determine if the construct validity of the DOSC (Form H) generalizes across different groups, regardless of age, race, gender or academic classification.
