For  this assignment, you will take two brief, online measurements.  Because  they are online measurements, please do not read deeply into the  results.  Instead, online measurements are quick “estimates” with  limited statistical validity and limited statistical reliability.

Anger and Anger Management

Step 1:  Click on and complete the Anger Test by answering and scoring the questions.

Step 2:  Thoughtfully answer the following questions related to the Anger test you completed:

  • Explain your results.
  • Describe  the ways in which you tend to express anger.  Integrate at least *two*  concepts from the assigned readings. (Textbook 8.3 addresses culture and  emotion.)
  • Discuss  at least *three* effective coping strategies you either implement or  plan to implement when you experience a high level of anger (anger  reactive response) or avoid experiencing anger, even when anger is  warranted (anger avoidant response).

Internal or External Locus of Control

In  1984, Julian Rotter set forth his Expectancy Theory, which suggests  that learning creates thoughts or “expectancies” that guide our  behavior.  Furthermore, our “expectancies” are also influenced by how  rewards and punishments are controlled.

If you believe that expectancies are controlled by your own efforts, then you have an internal locus of control.   In other words, your own effort controls the outcome of a situation. “I  did well because I studied hard” reflects an internal locus of control.

If you tend to believe that rewards or punishments are controlled by factors external of you, such as luck, then you are demonstrating an external locus of control.  In other words, you attribute outcomes to situations from which you  have no control. “I did well because I got lucky” reflects an external  locus of control.

You  can have a combination of both, especially in different situations.   However, our thinking tends to be dominated by one or the other.

Step 3:  Click on and complete the Locus of Control Test.

You  will see a prompt to allow “Scripted Windows,” which you can  temporarily allow. Scores range from 0 – 13.  A high score indicates an  external locus of control, and a low score indicates an internal locus  of control.

Alternate Scoring Method: If  your test did not score your responses, it will display “NaN” in the  area that should display your score.  If this occurs, you can  either launch a different web browser and copy/paste the url for the  test and take the test.  If that does not work, please click the  following to score your Locus of Control Test:  Alternative Scoring Method.

Step 4:  Thoughtfully answer the following questions related to the Locus of Control test you completed:

  • Explain your results, including if you have an internal or an external locus of control.
  • How might your locus of control be affecting your life, personally and academically?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of an internal locus of control?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of an external locus of control?
  • Explain at least one situation in which you tend to display an internal locus of control.
  • Explain at least one situation in which you tend to display an external locus of control.
