Gadzella, Bernadette M.; And Others
The study investigated (a) relationships between measures on study habits and attitudes, locus of control, achieving tendency, and semester grade-point averages (SGPA), (b) differences between the sexes on the above mentioned variables, and (c) best predictor of SGPA. The subjects were 39 males and 81 females. There were a number of significant relationships between these variables for the total group and for each of the sexes. Some of the relationships were positive, others were inverse. Results showed females obtaining higher scores on five study skills scales and SGPA and males obtaining higher scores on Powerful Others and Chance scales of the locus of control inventory. The best predictor of SGPA was one's Study Habits measure. (Author)
