Prisoners' and Non-Institutional Adults' Perceptions of Conditions Affecting Their Learning.
Fagan, William T.
Journal of Correctional Education, v40 n4 p152-58 Dec 1989
A study used the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire and the Nowicki-Strickland Internal-External Control Scale to understand the nature of internal and external factors in the lives of two groups of low literate adults--26 prisoners and 26 persons in noninstitutional settings. Results showed that both groups attribute their situation more to external factors or self-characteristics than to self-decisions. (Author)
