Filler Items and Social Desirability in Rotter's Locus of Control Scale
Kestenbaum, Joel M.; Hammersla, Joy
Journal of Personality Assessment, 40, 2, 162-8, Apr 76
Three experiments were conducted with college psychology students to determine whether the use of filler items in Rotter's I-E scale fulfills its stated objective of obscuring the purpose of the scale. Fillers didn't effect I-E scores, impede subjects from faking good, or obscure knowledge of the scale. (Author/DEP)
