Academic Help-Seeking in the University Setting: The Effects of Motivational Set, Attributional Style, and Help Source Characteristics.
Magnusson, Jamie-Lynn; Perry, Raymond P.
Research in Higher Education, v33 n2 p227-45 Apr 1992
A study investigated college students' (n=226) academic help-seeking behavior under task-involved and ego-involved classroom conditions, students' attributions for failure, and two types of help source (instrumental, in which the student finds his own solution, and executive, in which a solution is disclosed). Implications for classroom teaching are examined. (Author/MSE)
