Chapter 9: Locus of Control (LOCO) Inventory
Locus of Control (LOCO) Inventory
9.1 The Instrument and its Administration
The LOCO inventory has 10 items each for internality, externality (others) and externality (luck). LOCO inventory has been developed for use in organisations. The locus of control orientations are reflected in the way people feel about what happens in the organisation: How much control they, other significant persons, or neither (being a matter of luck), have in important organisational matters. These matters relate to success or effectiveness, influence, acceptability, career advancement and rewards. The distribution of the 30 items in the inventory is shown in Table 9.1.
The inventory is self-administered. Respondents rate each statement on a 5-point scale, indicating how strongly they feel about the statement.
