An Examination of the Influence of Self Efficacy, Locus of Control, and Perceptions of Parent Involvement on Academic Achievement of Urban High School Students
Myree, Claudia
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Current research indicates that there is an on-going concern for the graduation rate of African American students in urban settings. This particular study sought to investigate the impact of students' self-efficacy, locus of control, and parental involvement on academic achievement via a targeted sample of urban African American high school students, located in two different cities, sixty miles apart from one another. The results of this study found that parental involvement was evident for both locations, but that levels of self-efficacy and locus of control varied. Additional research would need to be conducted to sufficiently support the findings. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
