Effect of Socio-Economic Deprivation on Intelligence, Self-Concept and Academic Motivation

Authors: Dr. Anil Kumar

Pages: 89-90


272 undergraduate male college students were administered Mohsin’s General Intelligence Test along with Singh’s Academic Inventory to examine whether the deprived and non-deprived college students differ in terms of their intelligence, self concept and academic motivation. The findings reveal that the non-deprived group has scored significantly higher on intelligence than the deprived group. Although the non-deprived group has scored slightly higher on self–concept and lower on academic motivation than deprived group, the mean differences have been found statistically insignificant.
