Prof. Madhu Gupta, Sunita Kumari


The present study was undertaken to examine the organizational commitment of secondary school teachers in relation to locus of control and gender. Organizational commitment was treated as dependent variable whereas locus of control (internal and external) and gender (male and female) were treated as independent variables. Descriptive survey method was employed for the present study. A sample of 350 teachers was taken using multi-stage random sampling technique. Organizational commitment Scale by Hyde and Roy (2006) and Teachers Locus of Control Scale by Gupta and Nain (2016) were used to collect the data. Two-Way ANOVA with 2x2 factorial design was used to analyze the data. Levene’s Test of Homogeneity of Variance was also applied to test the assumption of homogeneity of variance for ANOVA.
