Effects of Competitive Reward Structure and Valence of Outcome on Children's Achievement Attributions
Ames, Carole; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 1, 1-8, Feb 77
Fifth-grade boys solved sets of achievement-related puzzles, working in pairs in which one succeeded and one failed. Results showed the reward structure of the performance setting was an important determinant of self and interpersonal evaluations. Competitive conditions caused self-punitive behavior for failure outcomes and some ego-enhancing strategies for success outcomes. (Author/MV)
