Explaining Teacher Explanations of Pupil Performance; A Self-Presentation Interpretation.
Tetlock, Philip E.
Social Psychology Quarterly, v43 n3 p283-90 Sep 1980
The possibility that teachers' counterdefensive attributions are self-presentations designed to establish favorable social identities is examined. An experiment by Ross et al. (1974) in which teachers were led to believe that they had been successful or unsucessful in teaching a lesson to a pupil is simulated. (Author/GK)
