Abstract

The reported study proposes an adapted version of an existing instrument which has been changed to measure the amount of control experienced by employees at work. Experienced Control Theory is presented and contrasted with Locus of Control Theory. Construction and reliability of the instrument are reported and discussed. Results of discriminant validity and the possibility of using the instrument as an indicator of coping are presented, using a sample drawn from a Midwestern hospital. Suggestions for scale refinement and recommendations for further research are discussed.
