All other information was presented in frequency tables or narrative ...

The Association Between Attributional Styles and Academic Performance of Students in a Program of Religious Studies

The Association Between Attributional Styles and Academic Performance of Students in a Program of Religious Studies

Date: May 1992
Creator: Ward, Charles W.
Description: The problem addressed in this study was to determine if a significant association exists between attributions and academic achievement among students in a program of religious training at a Bible college. The research was designed to ascertain if optimistic attributions are more frequently associated with students in programs of religious education than with students in a public state-supported university environment. No significant correlation was found between optimistic explanatory styles and the academic achievement of Bible college students. A significant positive difference was found to exist between the explanatory styles of students at The Criswell College and students at the University of North Texas. Students in religious courses of study tended toward attributions for negative events that were external, unstable, and specific. The University of North Texas students tended toward attributions for negative events that were internal, stable, and global.
