Oliver, Joseph E.; Jose, Paul E.; Brough, Paula – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
Original formulations of the Work Locus of Control Scale (WLCS) proposed a unidimensional structure of this measure; however, more recently, evidence for a two-dimensional structure has been reported, with separate subscales for internal and external loci of control. The current study evaluates the one- and two-factor models with confirmatory…

Omizo, Michael M.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
The relationship was examined between six scales of the Locus of Control for Three Achievement Domains (LOCITAD), the Nowicki-Strickland Locus of Control Scale, and the Rotter Internal-External Scale. Subjects were 140 adolescent boys and girls. Significant correlations provided some support for LOCITAD's validity. (Author/GDC)

Coefficient alpha reliability estimates and interscale correlations were obtained for five locus of control scales administered to 267 undergraduates: the Rotter Internal-External Scale; the 18-item version of the Reid and Ware scale; the Levenson scale; the Nowicki-Strickland adult internal/external scale; and the Duttweiler Internal Control…

Davis, Caroline; Cowles, Michael – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1989
Computerized and paper-and-pencil versions of four standard personality inventories administered to 147 undergraduates were compared for: (1) test-retest reliability; (2) scores; (3) trait anxiety; (4) interaction between method and social desirability; and (5) preferences concerning method of testing. Doubts concerning the efficacy of…

Edwards, Jack E.; Waters, L. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Scores on the Rotter I-E scale were correlated with scores on the verbal subtest of the College Qualification Test, cumulative grade point average, and attributions of performance to ability, effort, course difficulty, and luck. The I-E scores were unrelated to either verbal ability or grade point average. (Author/GK)

Edwards, Jack E.; Waters, L. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
The relationship between ability and grade point average was examined for the moderating effects of achievement motivation and locus of control for college students. Data indicated that achievement motivation did moderate the relationship between academic ability and cumulative grade point average for objective and subjective estimates of ability.…

An assessment was conducted of the relationship between students' evaluations of college instructors and four measures of students' affective characteristics: locus of control, achievement motivation, anxiety, and social desirability. A significant relationship was found between locus of control and instructor evaluation. (Author/CTM)

Zuckerman, Miron; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
A factor analysis of Rotter's internal-external locus of control scale is described. The four factors extracted were there correlated with several political attitude instruments. Results lead authors to suggest a modification in Rotter's scale, particularly in the "just world" items. (JKS)

Zerega, William D., Jr.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
The results show that the stability of the Rotter Internal-External Locus of Control Scale is established over an eight month period. Concurrent validity of the Rotter Internal-External Locus of Control Scales in relation to the MacDonald-Tseng Locus of Control Scale is established. (Author/DEP)
