This study examines the relations between the perception of control
(perceived control) and academic achievement of children in poverty.
Sixty-one first graders, 30 boys and 31 girls, seven to eight yearsold,
responded to scale of perceived control (CAMI Control, Agency, and
Means-Ends Interview), that evaluates children's control expectancy,
agency beliefs, and means-ends beliefs related to their school
performance. School achievement was measured by an Academic Performance
Test (TOE) and school assessments for passinglfalling students for the
school year. Correlational analyses showed a significant linear relation
between perceived control and academic achievement. Analysis of
variance revealed differences in perceived control between age and
gender groups.
