New questionnaire items to assess teachers' career stages were developed, and with a locus of control instrument, administered to a random sample of Australian high school teachers. The career data reinforced the inappropriateness of conceptualising teachers' career stages as linear. Hence, career states was adopted as a more appropriate term. This paper reports multilevel models relating career states with demographic variables and locus of control.
