Why Did You Learn in School Today? Teachers' Perceptions of Causality
Wiley, Mary Glenn; Eskilson, Arlene
Sociology of Education, 51, 4, 261-9, Oct 78
Teachers' attributions of cause for pupils' past performance were investigated under varying experimental conditions. Variables were pupils' race, sex, and past performance. Teachers' causal attributions were strongly influenced by students' race, but not by sex or past performance. Possible effects of such attributions on children's achievement motivation are considered. (Author/AV)
