Locus of Control and the Effectiveness of Social Reinforcers
Pawlicki, Robert E.
Journal of Genetic Psychology, 125, 1, 153-160, Sep 74
This study tested the hypothesis that the developmental change in the effectiveness of social reinforcement was related to changes in locus of control. A total of 145 subjects in grades 3, 4, 6, and 7 responded to the Children's Locus of Control Scale and to a simple game of measuring the effectiveness of either praise connoting or information connoting social reinforcers.
