Rationale for change

QID 400086:

Question stem asks "which of the following is a situational attribution" and gives a number of scenarios in the answer options. In this case, the key detail they're looking for is the recognizion that there is a presumption related to the idea that the person's behavior is due to circumstantial, rather than internal or dispositional, factors.

The correct answer relates a student dropping out of school due to environmental stressors. Incorrect answer options mis-state the rationale, or conflate decisions made with internal factors.

{{c1::Situational attribution}} is the assumption that a person's behavior is due to {{c2::situational factors}}.
Imagine a kid submitting their assignment late:
the teacher may blame the kid's laziness - this is dispositional attribution
or the teacher may think there could have been a family issue - this is situational attribution
