A Causal Analysis of the Relationship between Locus of Control and Academic Achievement in First Grade.
Stipek, Deborah
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v5 n1 p90-99 Jan 1980
Achievement and locus of control data were gathered the first week of first grade, and seven months later, for middle- and lower-socioeconomic status (SES) children. While middle-SES children experienced greater achievement gains, lower-SES students increased in internal control. Results suggested that internal control contributed to achievement. (Author/GDC)
