Decision Styles and Student Simulation Performance: A Replication


  • Robert W. Hornaday

Hornaday and Wheatley ( 4] compared the usefulness of the Rowe Decision Style Inventory (DSI) with the Rotter locus of control scale in differentiating student performance on a management simulation. They found that students with Conceptual decision styles scored significantly higher on a management simulation than other decision styles and that decision style seemed to be closely related to locus of control. This paper re- ports an effort that failed to replicate those findings with a different sample of students and a different simulation.
