Development of Perception of Own Attainment and Causal Attributions for Success and Failure in Reading.
Nicholls, John G.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v71 n1 p94-99 Feb 1979
This study investigated age trends in children's explanations of their own academic successes and failures. Ability attributions for success and failure in reading were more effectively predicted by reading attainment in older than in younger children. Perception of own attainment was more accurate in older children. Sex differences were also obtained. (Author/RD)
