dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to: describe the nature of attributions and affect, and the interactive correlation between the two variables, and academic achievement; determine the relation between socio-economic status, age and gender, and achievement in English of these pupils empirically; determine the relation between attributions, affect and achievement in English of the pupils empirically. The following conclusions were drawn from the literary review: attribution style influences emotional reaction, expectations regarding success or failure and academic achievement; emotional reaction increases or decreases motivation to become involved in further learning attempts; a strong correlation exists between achievement values, attribution style and affect, which eventually influences the pupil's desire to initiate and maintain a learning attempt; motivation to learn is influenced by differences between pupils and various classroom variables. The empirical study showed the following: there is no correlation between the socio-economic status of the school, age and gender, and the achievement in English of the pupils; there is no correlation between attribution style, affect and achievement in English; there is a correlation between affect and the achievement of the pupils in the comprehension test that formed part of the motivation questionnaire of the study. en
