AbstractThis study was designed to examine the relationship of Locus of Control with Teacher Stress. Research and null hypotheses were formulated and additional information was collected through the use of a subjective survey. The subjects of this study were 100 secondary school teachers who were attending summer school at The University of Arizona in 1981, in the College of Education. The I-E Locus of Control Scale and the Teacher Stress Events Inventory were administered to collect data. Four subgroups were developed from interactions of the two variables. Null hypotheses were created to examine the relationship of high and low Locus of Control with high and low Teacher Stress. A scattergram and Pierson Product Moment Correlation were used to examine each subgroup and their respective null hypotheses for statistical significance and linear directionality. No subgroups yielded statistical significance and all null hypotheses were retained. An analysis of additional information was obtained by cross-tabulations of selected items of demographic data. The analysis, by clusters, revealed that most subjects: (1) Were $25,000 from more than one income and considered themselves under little stress.
