Self-Reflection Assignment: Diabetes
The purpose of this assignment is to explore anger expression and also to explore locus of control.
Learning Objectives: 3d, 4a, and 4b
For this assignment, you will take two brief, online measurements. Because they are online measurements, please do not read deeply into the results. Instead, online measurements are quick “estimates” with limited statistical validity and limited statistical reliability.

Anger and Anger Management
Step 1: Click on and complete the Anger Management Test by answering and scoring the questions.
Step 2: Thoughtfully answer the following questions related to the Anger test you completed:
· Explain your results.
· Describe the ways in which you tend to express anger. Integrate at least *two* concepts from the assigned readings.
· Discuss at least *three* effective coping strategies you either implement or plan to implement when you experience a high level of anger (anger reactive response) or avoid experiencing anger, even when anger is warranted (anger avoidant response).
Internal or External Locus of Control
In 1984, Julian Rotter set forth his Expectancy Theory, which suggests that learning creates thoughts or “expectancies” that guide our behavior. Furthermore, our “expectancies” are also influenced by how rewards and punishments are controlled.
If you believe that expectancies are controlled by your own efforts, then you have an internal locus of control. In other words, your own effort controls the outcome of a situation. “I did well because I studied hard” reflects an internal locus of control.
If you tend to believe that rewards or punishments are controlled by factors external of you, such as luck, then you are demonstrating an external locus of control. In other words, you attribute outcomes to situations from which you have no control. “I did well because I got lucky” reflects an external locus of control.
You can have a combination of both, especially in different situations. However, our thinking tends to be dominated by one or the other.
Step 3: Click on and complete the Locus of Control Test.
You will see a prompt to allow “Scripted Windows,” which you can temporarily allow. Scores range from 0 – 13. A high score indicates an external locus of control, and a low score indicates an internal locus of control.
Alternate Scoring Method: If your test did not score your responses, it will display “NaN” in the area that should display your score. If this occurs, you can either launch a different web browser and copy/paste the url for the test and take the test, or you can determine whether each question you selected reflects an internal or external locus of control. Then, you could count your responses to determine if you predominately have an internal or external locus of control. Self-Reflection Assignment: Diabetes
Step 4: Thoughtfully answer the following questions related to the Locus of Control test you completed:
· Explain your results, including if you have an internal or an external locus of control.
· How might your locus of control be affecting your life, personally and academically?
· What are the strengths and weaknesses of an internal locus of control?
· What are the strengths and weaknesses of an external locus of control?
· Explain at least one situation in which you tend to display an internal locus of control.
· Explain at least one situation in which you tend to display an external locus of control.
