The questionnaire measures the personality dimension called locus of control of reinforcement as described in J. B. Rotter’s social learning theory.

DESCRIPTION: The KBPK consists of 46 items, 36 of which are diagnostic. There are two scales: Successes (items relating to positive outcomes) and Failures (items relating to negative outcomes). Low scores are indicative of external locus of control and high scores are indicative of internal locus of control. The questionnaire comes in two versions, one for girls and one for boys. The two versions differ only in grammatical form.

RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY: The KBPK has satisfactory internal consistency. Concurrent and construct validity have been established empirically.

NORMS: For adolescents aged 13-17.

APPLICATIONS: Primarily for research purposes; may also be used to aid personality diagnosis in psychological practice.
