CAUSAL ATTRIBUTION AND EXPECTATION FOR SCHOOL PERFORMANCE OF 5TH AND 6TH GRADE

A set of constructs related to personal control (attributions and expectations) is used as the basis for the design and testing allocation with the performances of 5th and 6th grade from a sample of 210 students from different social groups (fishermen, emigrants, others). The data point out the following causal relationships: external attributions for school failure are positive determinants for experiences of de-motivation and self-efficacy (the higher the external attributions are the higher expectations for de-motivation and self-efficacy will be). During this study we analysed the correlations between the following psychological variables - causal attributions, loneliness, shyness and sociability, satisfaction with the existence - and performance school. Our findings indicated a significant statistic correlation between the performance school and attributions.
