Failure: Facilitating or Debilitating?
Bardwell, Rebecca
Journal of Experimental Education, v52 n4 p192-94 Sum 1984
The motivational effects of failure were investigated. Students worked perceptual judgment problems, receiving varying levels of failure feedback on their work on unsolvable problems. Subjects assessed their success or failure at the task. Those who believed they had failed scored higher on a subsequent set of similar, but solvable, problems. (Author/DWH)
