Development of Independence: Locus of Control, Achievement Motivation and Self vs. Adult Evaluation.
Dickie, Jane R.; Mast, Vicki A.
The development and interrelationship of various measures of independence in children ages 3-12 are examined. Subjects were scored on measures of locus of control and achievement motivation and were rated by teachers on independence and achievement. Subjects were also scored on reliance on adult evaluation and self-evaluation. The results showed that each of these measures follows a different developmental pattern and is related differently to each other, depending on ages, thus suggesting qualitative differences in independence at different age levels.
