Locus of Control and Academic Achievement: Results from a Preschool Intervention Program.
Walden, Tedrea A.; Ramey, Craig T.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v75 n3 p347-58 Jun 1983
Academically high-risk children who had participated in an efficacy-oriented intervention program were compared to a group of high-risk nonintervention children and a low-risk comparison group. The high-risk intervention and low-risk children had stronger beliefs in personal control over academic success; these beliefs were good predictors of achievement. (Author/LC)
