Locus of Control and Intentional Versus Incidental Learning
Dixon, Paul N.
Journal of Experimental Education, 46, 2, 12-6, W 78
The locus of control of subjects may be the confounding variable affecting the acceptance of motivational cues in intentional-incidental (INT-INC) learning studies, and thus the reason for conflicting results in "funneling effect" (leaning toward intentional learning as a function of motivation) experiments. 96 female college students selected for locus of control were studied for performance difference on INT and INC learning under high and low motivation.
