INFLUENCE OF PERCEIVED LOCUS OF CONTROL ON STUDENTS’ SELF-EFFICACY BELIEF AND ACHIEVEMENT IN INTEGRATED SCIENCE

ABSTRACT

 This study sought to determine the influence of perceived locus of control on students’ self-efficacy belief and achievement in integrated science. The study also examined the influence of gender on perceived locus of control, self-efficacy belief and achievement in integrated science. Six research questions were generated and used for the study. Five null hypotheses were also formulated to guide the study. The design of the study was an ex-post-facto research design. The study was carried out in Nsukka Education zone of Enugu State. The sample for the study consisted of junior secondary class II students in the five intact classes drawn from five single sex junior secondary schools in Nsukka education zone. Two instruments were used for data collection Perceived Locus of Control Scale (PLCS) developed by Dutweiler (1984) and Self-Efficacy Scale (SES) that was developed by the researcher with the help of an expert in educational psychology after relevant literature. Students’ achievement scores was obtained. The data collected using the instruments were analyzed suing mean and standard deviation to answer the research questions and t –test analysis was used to test the hypothesis. The major findings of the study are: perceived locus of control has a significant influence on students’ self-efficacy belief and achievement in integrated science, also there is no significant influence of gender on students’ locus of control, perceived self-efficacy belief and achievement in integrated science. A major recommendation of the study is that considering the importance of locus of control on students’ self-efficacy belief and achievement in integrated science, students should be taught on how to picture themselves succeeding in the challenging situations given the level of effort made towards the task. Some educational implications were highlighted and suggestions for further studies made.
