The purpose of this study, an experimental design utilizing two experimental groups and one control group, was to determine if self-esteem intervention treatments significantly impact the self-esteem behavior levels of tenth-grade African American male subjects. Further, the study examined the relation between attendance and general self-esteem. The two instruments used in this study were the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory and the Semester Attendance Log. The sample for the study consisted of fifteen subjects in Experimental Group A, fourteen subjects in Experimental Group B, and sixteen Control Group subjects.

ANOVA, Scheffe, and a dependent t test were used for statistical analysis in this study. Data analysis indicated that the self-esteem behavior levels of the subjects in the treatment groups showed significant statistical gains after the treatment.
