1 M1 I enjoyed learning very much. 5 4 2 1 3

2 M2 Learning was fun to do. 5 4 2 1 3

Learning activity did not hold my


3 M3 5 4 2 1 3
attention at all.
I would describe learning as a very
4 M4 5 4 2 1 3
interesting activity
I thought Learning was quite
5 M5 5 4 2 1 3
enjoyable.
While I was learning,I was thinking
6 M6 5 4 2 1 3
about how much I enjoyed it.
I thought Learning was a boring
7 M7 activity. 5 4 2 1 3

Section D
When I make plans, I am almost
1 LOC1 5 4 2 1 3
certain I can make them work.
I don't have enough control over the
2 LOC2 5 4 2 1 3
direction my life is taking.
In my life, good luck is more
3 LOC3 important than hard work for success. 5 4 2 1 3

Every time I try to get ahead,


4 LOC4 5 4 2 1 3
something or somebody stops me.
My plans hardly ever work out, so
5 LOC5 5 4 2 1 3
planning only makes me unhappy

I have little control over the things
3 SE3 5 4 2 1 3
that happen to me.
I often feel helpless in dealing with
4 SE4 5 4 2 1 3
the problems of life.
There is little I can do to change
5 SE5 many of the important things in my 5 4 2 1 3
life.
All in all, I am inclined to feel that I
6 SE6 5 4 2 1 3
am a failure.
I am able to do things as well as most
7 SE7 5 4 2 1 3
other people.
8 SE8 I certainly feel useless at times. 5 4 2 1 3
