Children's Social Goals and Self-Efficacy Perceptions as Influences on their Responses to Ambiguous Provocation.
Erdley, Cynthia A.; Asher, Steven R.
Child Development, v67 n4 p1329-44 Aug 1996
Examined whether children who vary in their behavioral responses to ambiguous provocation but have similar attributional processes differ in their social goals and self- efficacy perceptions. Subjects were 781 4th and 5th graders. Found that aggressive, withdrawn, and problem-solving responders differed in the social goals and self-efficacy perceptions, suggesting the importance of a situated social-cognitive assessment. (MOK)
