Attributions Past performance People seek explanations for retrospective success and failure in order to understand the self with an overall goal of maintaining a positive self-image. Either effort or ability are the basis for most learning attributions Attributions explain success and failure using three causal dimensions. First, internal or external locus is considered. Second, causes are evaluated for stability. Third, success and failure are attributed to either controllable (effort/ability) or uncontrollable factors (luck) Attributions are useful to examine academic performance and social integration. They are particularly helpful to understand academic apathy or learned helplessness. Attributional beliefs are highly focused on personal competency assessments Educators should provide feedback that focuses on effort. Feedback that uses the self as a performance benchmark is preferred. Educators should also model effort attributions and provide learners with attainable proximal goals
