Teachers' Attributions for Students' Low Achievement: A Validation of Cooper and Good's Attributional Categories.
Tollefson, Nona; And Others
Psychology in the Schools, v27 n1 p75-83 Jan 1990
Teachers' explanations for students' low achievement were reliably classified using Cooper and Good's (1983) attributional coding system. Teachers most frequently attributed low achievement to typical pattern of low effort. They viewed acquired student characteristics (low motivation, poor work habits) as more important than either teacher variables or classroom variables in explaining students' low achievement.
