Gender Differences in Performance Attributions: Students' Explanations for Personal Success or Failure.
Sweeney, Paul D.; And Others
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n4 p359-73 Apr 1982
To test the hypothesis that women exhibit an externality bias in their performance attribution, male and female college students made effort, ability, luck, and task difficulty attributions for their performance on a recent course examination. Findings suggested an internality bias among men, rather than an externality bias among women. (Author/GC)
