1. Helpless Attributions

You start a new class at the beginning of the year and you really like the subject and the teacher. You think you know the subject pretty well, so you study a medium amount for the first quiz. Afterward, you think you did okay, even though there were some questions you didn’t know the answer for. Then the class gets their quizzes back and you find out your score: you only got a 54, and that’s an F.

* 1. I didn’t go about studying in the right way.
