An Empirical Examination of Weiner's Critique of Attribution Research.
Covington, Martin V.; Omelich, Carol L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n6 p1214-25 Dec 1984
Weiner's allegations of errors in testing his theory (presumed detrimental effects of investigating a restricted range of variables, use of expectancy changes as a mediating variable, and presumed inappropriateness of classroom performance as a dependent variable) are evaluated. Disconfirmation of Weiner's predictions occurs irrespective of expectancy measure or behavioral criterion. (Author/DWH)
