An Attributional Theory of Achievement Motivation and Emotion.
Weiner, Bernard
Psychological Review, v92 n4 p548-73 Oct 1985
This article advances an attributional theory of motivation and emotion, with achievement strivings as the theoretical focus. Causes of success and failure share three common properties: locus, stability, and controllability. Stability of causes influences changes in expectancy of success. Expectancy and affect guide motivated behavior. (Author/LMO)
