The present study examined the predictive validity of the Children’s Attributional Styles Questionnaire (CASQ) by investigating associations between children’s attributional style and their cognitive appraisals of an in vivo peer evaluation manipulation. Participants (n = 92), ages 10–13, played a computer contest based on the television show Survivor and were randomized to either a peer rejection (i.e., receiving the lowest total ‘likeability’ score from a group of peer-evaluators), a peer success (i.e., receiving the highest score), or a neutral peer feedback condition. Children reporting a more depressogenic attributional style displayed more negative cognitive appraisals of failure feedback. However, no linkage was found between children’s enhancing attributional style and their appraisal of success feedback. These findings provide partial support for the predictive validity of the CASQ.
