Causal Attributions of Students and Student-Proctors for Performance on a University Examination.
Wyatt, Susan A.; Medway, Frederic J.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v9 n1 p25-37 Jan 1984
The importance of several causes of examination outcomes prior to and after taking a course exam were rated by undergraduate freshmen and advanced psychology students serving as proctors. Freshmen rated proctor characteristics as more important than their own as determinants of exam outcomes. Positivity, rather than egotism, biases were operative. (Author/DWH)
