Gender and Race Differences in Causal Attributions in Achievement Situations.
Berg, Phyllis A.; Hyde, Janet S.
Causal attributions were obtained from male and female subjects of two racial groups, black and white, following achievement performance in a "natural" setting. Although women expected lower grades than men, no significant differences in attributional ratings as function of gender were observed, nor were any race by gender interactions seen in the data. Race, however, in a complex interaction with performance expectation and performance outcome, significantly modified attributional ratings of ability and luck. Whites yielded patterns that were consistent with previously reported findings, while blacks showed different patterns. Results were discussed in relation to previous attribution research. (Author)
