Self-Efficacy and Locus of Control Among School Students
According to Bandura the concept of observational learning new responses is learned by observing other people’s behaviour and can be through vicarious learning. Philip Zimbardo in 1985 stated that locus of control orientation is a belief about whether the outcomes of our actions are contingent on what we do (internal control orientation) or on events outside our personal control (external control orientation). The purpose of the study self-efficacy and locus of control among school students. A total of 260 students from classes 11th and 12th from Kottayam district of Kerala was chosen for the study. The tools used for the study was General self-efficacy scale and Locus of control scale. The data was analysed using Spearman correlation test and Mann-Whitney U test. The results indicate that there is no significant relationship between self-efficacy and locus of control among school students. No gender difference was observed in the levels of Self-efficacy and Locus of Control.
