Hamilton, Richard J.; Akhter, Selina – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied the construct validity of the dimensions of the Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale based on B. Wiener's attribution model (1979) in achievement and affiliation goal domains. Results for 172 New Zealand college students provide evidence that the measure is better used as a goal specific measure than a general measure. (SLD)

Higgins, N. C.; Zumbo, Bruno D.; Hay, Jana L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Confirmatory factor analysis of data from 1,346 respondents to the Attributional Style Questionnaire (ASQ) (C. Peterson and others, 1982) reveals that adequate fit is provided by a three-factor attributional style model that includes context-dependent item sets. Results suggest that there is no such thing as a nonsituational attributional style.…

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
College students were administered the Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale (MMCS). Most of the 3-item subscales had adequate reliabilities. A factor analysis of intercorrelations of responses revealed three pure factors and three ambiguous factors. Results provide partial support for reliability and factorial validity of the MMCS.…

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
The Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale and the Mathematics Attribution Scale were administered to 107 gifted high school students. Both scales' assessments of the attribution of school success and failure to effort and ability were significantly correlated. Limited support for their convergent validity was indicated.

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale (MMCS) was administered to 74 academically gifted high school students. Data analysis supported the factorial validity of the MMCS. However, several limitations of the scale are discussed. (Author/PN)

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The Mathematics Attribution Scale-Algebra (MAS) was designed to assess attributions to ability, effort, task, and environment for success or failure in algebra. The study examined the reliability and validity of the MAS with high ability high school students. Results present a complicated picture of the psychometric properties of the MAS. (Author)

Choroszy, Melisa; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The Mathematics Attribution Scale (MAS) (Algebra) was designed to assess attributions of success and failure in algebra to ability, effort, task, and environment. This study examined the MAS (Algebra) for a separate dimension of attributes for success and a dimension of attributes for failure. The two hypothesized dimensions did not emerge.…

Powers, Stephen; Rossman, Mark H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The reliability and validity of the Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale was examined for 350 American community college students, ranging in age from 17 to 59. The attributions of ability, effort, context, and luck emerged as well as distinctions between attributions related to academic success or failure. (Author/PN)

Edwards, Jack E.; Waters, L. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Scores on the Rotter I-E scale were correlated with scores on the verbal subtest of the College Qualification Test, cumulative grade point average, and attributions of performance to ability, effort, course difficulty, and luck. The I-E scores were unrelated to either verbal ability or grade point average. (Author/GK)

Wong, Paul T. P.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
The Trent Attribution Profile provides measures of locus of control and stability which can be further partitioned into individual attribution elements (ability, effort, task difficulty, luck). Reliability and validity data are reported. (Author/JKS)
