Children's Beliefs in Internal-External Control and Self-Esteem as Related to Academic Achievement
Gordon, Donald A.
Journal of Personality Assessment, 41, 4, 383-6, Aug 77
An internal locus of control (LOC) orientation was significantly related to academic achievement and high self-esteem. For males, LOC was related to grade point averages and not achievement test scores, while the reverse held for females. Differential socialization of females from males might account for the lack of relationship between grades and LOC. (Author/EVH)
