AbstractThis study was designed to investigate the effects of Relaxation, Positive Suggestion and Success Imagery (RSI) on locus of control and scores on teacher-made exams in an undergraduate college population. As well as to investigate interactions between locus of control and the exam scores. The sample, composed of 52 females and 2 males ranging in age from 18-47, confirmed previous findings that women in college do not show an interaction between locus of control and grades. Furthermore, RSI did not appear to significantly change locus of control or exam scores for the whole sample. However, the data suggests RSI to effectively change locus of control and grades with the younger aged students, inferring that an internal locus of control is easier to develop and grades are easier to influence in younger students with this procedure.
