Teacher Locus of Control and Its Correlates among Experienced Teachers.
This study examined the locus of control of experienced teachers with reference to their gender and academic background; and ascertained the relationships between locus of control and: (1) educational attitudes in general; (2) attitudes toward change; (3) sense of responsibility; and (4) classroom teaching behavior. Subjects were 80 secondary school teachers equally distributed in sex and academic qualifications. A description is given of the instruments used in measuring locus of control in each of the four areas. Tables display results in the categories of: (1) demographic variables; (2) intercorrelations between the four measures; and (3) mean comparisons between subjects scoring high on locus of control and low locus of control. The results are discussed and some possible lines for further research are suggested. Fifteen references are included. (JD)
