The present paper's purpose was to investigate the Harter Self-Perception scale thru a convergent validity analysis. The participants were 291 southern adolescents, mean age 17 years, from both sexes and high school students. The instruments were the Harter Self Perception Scale (HSPS-A), the Rosenberg's Self Esteem Scale, the Multidimensional Life Satisfaction Scale and the Children Depression Inventory. The results offered evidence of satisfactory psychometrics characteristics of the HSPS-A. The reliability analysis indicated acceptable coefficients (∝=0.60 a ∝=0.88). The construct validity was confirmed thru the correlation analysis with the other instruments once all coefficients were significant and in the expected direction. The high correlation among the instruments indicates the need of other research to evaluate the self-perception dimensions and the relations between this and other correlates constructs such as self-esteem, life satisfaction and self-concept.
