Predictors of Middle School Students' Use of Self- Handicapping Strategies.
Midgley, Carol; Urdan, Tim
Journal of Early Adolescence, v15 n4 p389-411 Nov 1995
By procrastinating, allowing others to keep them from studying, deliberately not trying, and using other "self-handicapping" strategies, students can convey that those circumstances, rather than lack of ability, are the reasons for subsequent poor performance. Survey data from 256 eighth-grade students indicated that boys use those strategies more than girls. (JBJ)
