Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the Human Development Program and locus of control as measured by the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire. Sixty-one subjects were selected from the fourth grade at the West Salem School in Salem, Oregon for this study. All fourth grade students in the West Salem School were pre-tested with the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire. Thirty subjects were in the treatment group and thirty-one in the control group. Subjects were matched by sex and pre-test scores. The treatment consisted of nineteen sessions of the Human Development Program Level I. The control subjects experienced no special treatment other than the regular school curriculum during the course of the experiment. Nine hypotheses testing the relationship between the Human Development Program and locus of control as measured by the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire were formulated. Analysis of each hypothesis showed that a significant relationship did not exist at the .10 level of confidence. The most nearly significant findings were that nineteen sessions of the Human Development Program did relate to an increase in internal responsibility for positive events as measured on the I+ scale of the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire. These findings were found for the total treatment group and for boys alone. The girls alone did not show a significant relationship.
