Children's Attributions for Failure and Success in Different Aspects of Reading.
Hiebert, Elfrieda H.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n6 p1139-48 Dec 1984
The attributions of third and sixth graders with low and high reading achievement were assessed in two reading situations. Major findings were: (1) sixth graders' locus of control scores varied across situations while third graders did not; (2) two causes--studying and paying attention--were particularly salient; and (3) age and achievement interacted.
