A Comparative Study of the Relationship of Locus of Control, the Vertical Organization of the Elementary School and Science Achievement.
Brooks, Marshall Allen
Reported is a study of the effects of locus of control and the school organization on science achievement of 122 students in non-graded schools and 181 students in graded schools. The dependent variable of the study was scores on the Stanford Achievement Test in Science and the independent variables were the student scores on the Children's Locus of Control Scale (CLOC) and the vertical organization of the school. It appeared that locus of control or a factor closely related to it did affect achievement in students who scored in the low group (externals) on the CLOC scale. Science achievement of graded students was significantly higher than non-graded students, indicating the existence of different levels of factual knowledge between students in the two types of schools.
