Suggested Responses: Students should define feelings of competence as related to success in and out of school and social acceptance as related to perceptions about how well one is liked by peers and adults - by one's popularity. The two types of self-evaluation are distinct and somewhat unrelated at this age. One can perceive one's self as competent but not feel socially accepted. Alternately, one can perceive one's self as popular but not feel competent. Collectivist cultures often hold inclusive views of self that connect feelings of accomplishments or competencies that are related to the entire family or community rather than to individual achievements.
