Traced four Canadian Grade 10 students' descriptions and interpretations of evaluative discourse in their junior high school, focusing on the use of effort and ability attributions to explain successes and failures. Each student participated individually in five semi-structured interviews with the researcher that were audiotaped, transcribed, and coded for descriptors of effort, ability, and performance.
