Causal Attributions of Underachieving Fourth-Grade Students in China, Japan, and the United States.
Tuss, Paul; And Others
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v26 n4 p408-25 Jul 1995
Explores the attributional orientation of underachieving students in three countries (Japan, China, and the United States). Responses from 738 students reveal that Asian students perceived controllable causes, particularly effort, to play a greater role in performance outcomes than did their American peers. Implications are discussed regarding the role causal beliefs and cultural factors may play in the underachievement phenomenon. (GR)
