The purpose of the present study is to investigate how achievement motives and incentive values are related to attribution. On the basis of an inventory, 166 advanced teacher students were scored on attribution for positive and negative academic events, on incentive value for those events, on the motive to seek success and on the motive to avoid failure. As expected, success-oriented persons attributed positive events more internally, stably and globally, and negative events more externally, unstably, and specifically, than failure-avoidant persons. Moreover, a positive relation was found between value and attribution for each event kind. Thirdly, multiple regression analysis showed that value had a moderate to small contribution for each event kind, whereas a motive classification had a corresponding contribution only for positive events. Finally, factor analysis resulted in two factors, one clearly interpreted as an expectancy factor and the other weakly interpreted as a value factor.
