The Effects of Attending a Community Controlled School on Pupils' Perception of Locus of Control.
Skeen, Elois M.
The perception of locus of control among one hundred and seventy-seven grade 4, 5, and 6 pupils in a traditional school, and one hundred and eighty-five grade 4, 5, and 6 children in a community controlled school was investigated. The Children's Internal Vs. External Scale which measures general life situations, and the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Scale which measures only academically related situations were administered. The results indicate that the students in a community controlled school are more "internal" than pupils in a traditional school when asked questions about general life situations. No significant differences, however, were found between the two groups on perception of locus of control in academic situations. (Author)
