Abstract: Four hundred and three African American and Caucasian male and female students from two middle schools were administered the Florida Key to obtain professed self-concept-as-learner measure scores (P-SCAL). The teachers of these same students completed the Florida Key to obtain inferred self-concept-as-learner scores (I-SCAL). A total score and four sub-scale scores (relating, asserting, coping, and investing) were obtained from scoring the Florida Key. These five scores were subsequently used to test differences in the professed and inferred self-concept-as-learner measures between: (1) Caucasian and African American students, (2) male and female students, (3) male African American and other students, (4) male African American and female African American students, and (5) male African American and male Caucasian students.
