Persistence and the Causal Perception of Failure: Modifying Cognitive Attributions
Andrews, Gregory R.; Debus, Ray L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 70, 2, 154-66, Apr 78
Two studies found temporal persistence and resistance to extinction to be positively related to the attribution of failure to insufficient effort, and negatively related to ability and task difficulty in sixth graders. Results provided support for the attribution model of achievement motivation as well as empirical foundation for attribution retraining projects. (Author/JAC)
