Abstract: Researchers have used children's attitudes toward helpfulness to investigate the conditions under which children seek and give help. Little attention has been given to examining the extent to which such measures correlate with actual behavior. In this study observations of grade 9-10 students working in cooperative learning groups were compared to generalized intentions to ask for and give help to peers. The intentions were poor predictors of observed behavior.
