Attributional Style as a Predictor of Success in College Mathematics.
Pierce, Margaret Anne; Henry, John W.
This study examines the effectiveness of multiple methods of soliciting attributions. The Attributional Style Questionnaire, specific attributions, and causal dimensions are used to predict the grades and feelings of frustration of college algebra students. The results show that, contrary to current theoretical work, both specific attributions and causal dimensions are equally effective in predicting grades and feelings of frustration. The implications for these multiple methods are discussed. Directions for further research in this area are suggested. (Contains 36 references.) (Author)
