Locus of Control and Acquisition of Computer Literacy

Journal of Computer-Based Instruction Volume 12, Number 1, ISSN 0098-597X


Describes a study to determine effects of computer-assisted instruction (versus a text mode of programed instruction) and locus of control on preservice elementary teachers' computer literacy achievement. Differences in test scores of externally controlled individuals favored CAI. There were no differences between treatments when internally controlled subjects were considered. (Author/MBR)
