Causal Attributions for Success and Failure: Advances in Theory and Applications.
Frieze, Irene H.
This paper presents an overview of current research on causal attributions for success and failure with a focus on theoretical developments since the Weiner et al (1971) paper and applications which have been made using this theoretical model. Theoretical advances include more sophisticated measurement of causal attributions, applications of the cognitive judgment literature to attributional judgments and work on the consequences of various attributions. Other work has been done on how a success or failure is defined. Applications to co-ed sports classes, consumer reactions to produce failure, employee performance judgments and alcoholism are referenced. (Author)
