Children's Understanding of the Implications of Causal Attributions for Emotional Experiences.
Stipek, Deborah J.; DeCotis, Karen M.
Child Development, v59 n6 p1601-10 Dec 1988
Two studies investigated children's perceptions of how the cause of achievement outcomes affects children's emotional responses. Children aged 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, and 13 rated the reactions of children in stories to success or failure in study one, and the cause of the stories' outcomes in study two. Age differences were found in both studies. (SKC)
