The Effect of Learning Strategy and Locus of Control Toward Learning Outcomes by Controlling Prior Knowledge
- learning strategy, contextual strategy, expository learning, locus of control.
The objectives of this research was to determine the effect of learning strategies Contextual Teaching learning (CTL) and expository learning) and locus of control on learning outcomes, after controlling prior knowledge. This research conducted at Air Putih 1 High School, North Sumatera during August to October 2016, and used a quasi-experimental method with a 2x2 factorial. The participants were 48 students were devided into two treatment classes. Data analysis was Analysis of covariate (ANCOVA) with significance level 0,05. The result indicate that : student’s learning outcomes who uses contextual learning strategy is better than expository learning after controlling prior knowledge; there was an interaction effect between learning strategy and locus of control after controlling prior knowledge; student’s who have a more precise of internal locus of control is taught with contextual learning strategy after controlling prior knowledge; expository learning strategy more effective for students who have external locus of control after controlling prior knowledge.
