Effects of Varying Performance Sets and Outcome on the Expectations, Attributions, and Persistence of Boys with Learning Disabilities.
Friedman, Dianne E.; Medway, Frederic J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v20 n5 p312-16 May 1987
Learning-disabled (N=48) and nonlearning-disabled (N=48) fourth- and fifth-grade boys were given a task and told they had either succeeded or failed. Results indicated that learning-disabled subjects showed greater persistence, attributed outcomes to external factors, and did not exhibit lower performance expectations nor show greater expectancy shifts after outcome information than peers.
