Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the interrelationships between loneliness, college academic achievement, and locus of control. The sample consisted of 97 subjects who were randomly selected from those students living in the residence hall system at Oregon State University. Five null hypotheses were tested: 1. There is no relationship between one's degree of loneliness and academic achievement in college students. 2. There is no relationship between one's degree of loneliness and one's locus of control orientation in college students. 3. There is no relationship between one's locus of control orientation and academic achievement in college students. 4. There is no difference between one's degree of loneliness and one's academic year. 5. There is no difference between one's degree of loneliness and one's sex. The Bradley Loneliness scale and Levenson Control scale were administered by the author to each subject individually. A Pearson product-moment correlation and Partial correlation were employed to analyze the first three null hypotheses. The fourth hypothesis was analyzed by a fixed one-way analysis of variance, and the fifth hypothesis utilized a T-test to determine if a significant difference existed or not. The first null hypothesis was the only hypothesis which was rejected (r = -.199, p = .05), thereby confirming the relationship between loneliness and college academic achievement. Mo other statistically significant results were found. Suggestions for further experimentation in this area were made.
