Summary/Abstract: The present study focuses on explanatory style among students affected by parental or family migration. The sample includes ninety-two Romanian high-school students left behind by migrant parents, seventy-six migrant students schooled abroad and eighty-two from families with no migration history. The central variable of our study was investigated with an adapted version of Attributional Style Questionnaire (ASQ), and findings indicate some significant effects of parental or family migration on students’ attributions about school success and failure. Results and their implications are discussed against the available literature.
