Is There Causality in Causal Attributions?
Omelich, Carol L.; Covington, Martin V.
Do success-oriented and failure-avoidant students differ in their performance because of differential attributions? Path analysis, which permits the evaluation of causal assumptions in well-specified theories, was employed to test the adequacy of the causal linkages in the attributional model of achievement behavior. Thus, although differences in attributions exist, they are not causally important. (Author)
