Open-Ended Attributions for the Performance of the Elderly.
Ryan, Kathryn M.; Bartlett-Weikel, Kim
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v37 n2 p139-52 1993
Explored open-ended attributions for success and failure of relatively younger and older men in social and academic situations using between-subjects design. Findings from 109 college students showed that respondents were more likely to make attributions that combined age with other attributional categories than attributions solely to target's age. Subjects made more ability-task interaction than ability attributions. (Author/NB)
