Locus and Control and Achievement in Middle Class and Lower Class Children.
Bartel, Nettie R.; And Others
A locus of control measure was administered to 431 lower and middle class children in grades one, two, four and six. Subjects did not differ significantly from each other on locus of control in grades one and two, but by fourth and sixth grades the differences had reached significance. Correlations between locus of control and achievement were generally positive for both lower and middle class children. Results were interpreted in terms of the social control function served by the public schools. (Author)
