Children's Achievement Attributions and Self-reinforcement: Effects of Self-concept and Competitive Reward Structure
Ames, Carole
Journal of Educational Psychology, 70, 3, 345-55, Jun 78
Fifth-grade students classified as high or low in self-concept were paired in an achievement-related task in which one succeeded and one failed. High self-concept children attributed success more to their high ability and engaged in more positive self-reinforcement than did low self-concept children. Results were discussed within an attribution model of behavior. (Author/JAC)
