Description This work was meant to investigate the social identity of night-school students and to establish which elements of such an identity are part of their self-concept. Some students from two state schools in a city in the North of Paraná were selected as subjects. The experimental procedure, which explains the contents of self-concept and was developed by Zavalloni, was used in this work. Sixteen night-school students and sixteen day-time students were selected as subject-groups. Each member of these two groups was supposed to establish characteristics for his/her in-group and out-group and point out those which were part of his/her own self-concept. The difference between 'We" and 'they" was outstanding. Each subject, by means of comparison, rated "We" more positively than "they" and presented more positive than negative characteristics for his/her own self-concept. The prevailing and essential characteristic for the social indent and sell-concept of the night-school student was "interested in studying", for s/he sees it as a "way for social advancement'. The data support the need for comparison between the groups in order to form their social identity and also support the role of this identity in the formation of sell-concept.
O presente trabalho teve como principal objetivo investigar a identidade social de alunos de curso noturno e identificar os elementos dessa identidade que fazem parte do auto-conceito desses estudantes. Como sujeitos, foram selecionados estudantes de dois colégios estaduais de um município do Norte do Paraná. Fez-se uso do procedimento experimental que elucida os conteúdos do auto-conceito -desenvolvido por Zavalloni, selecionando-se para isso dois grupos de sujeitos: dezesseis estudantes do curso noturno e dezesseis do diurno. Cada elemento teve como tarefa atribuir características para seu "in group" e para o “out-group", apontando as que fazem parte de seu auto-conceito. FICOU evidenciada a diferença entre “Nós" e “Eles"; cada membro, pelo processo de comparaç4o, avaliou "Nós" mais positivamente que "Eles" e atribuiu ao seu auto-conceito um número maior de características positivas que negativas. A característica essencial presente na identidade social e no auto-conceito do 1° ano noturno foi: interesse pelo estudo em função de ver nele um meio de "subir na vida". Os dados encontrados confirmam a necessidade da comparação entre grupos para a formação da identidade social e o papel dessas na formação do auto-conceito.
