Rust, James O.; Kinnard, Karen Q.
Journal of School Psychology, v21 n2 p91-98 Sum 1983
The Rokeach Dogmatism Scale and the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire were correlated with educator-reported (N=110) use of corporal punishment. Results indicated that closed-mindedness and neuroticism were highly correlated with reported use of corporal punishment. Extraversion was moderately correlated with reported use of corporal punishment, while psychoticism showed no significant relationship. (Author/HLM)
