Enhancing Differences in the Achievement Attributions of High- and Low-Motivation Groups.
Scapinello, Ken F.
Journal of Social Psychology, v129 n3 p357-63 Jun 1989
Examines the attribution of achievement to ability and effort in low- and high-motivation groups. Randomly selected subjects are assigned to one of four feedback conditions that combine levels of consensus with success and failure. Suggests that attributional differences between motivational groups can be systematically enhanced or attenuated by modifying context. (KO)
