The Achievement of Students on Low-SES Settings: An Investigation of the Relationship between Locus of Control and Field Dependence.
Garner, C. William; Cole, Ernest G.
Urban Education, v21 n2 p189-206 Jul 1986
Presents results of a study of low-socioeconomic status grade 7 students which examined why some achieve and others do not. Focuses on which differences in self-attitudes (locus of control) and cognitive processing (field dependence) existed between the achiever and non-achiever, and whether these differences are related to achievement.
