The Effect of Performance Feedback by a Partner of the Same or Opposite Racial Group on Subsequent Performance, Self-Concept and Attitudes Toward Partner.
Mazurkewicz, Dolores T.
The effects of performance feedback of success and failure given by partners to 96 subjects of the same or opposite racial groups were measured in terms of subsequent performance on a paired-associate learning task and number of negative and positive adjectives checked for self and partner. Analysis of variance showed that the procedure yielded a significant interaction between feedback and race of S. Blacks were more favorably influenced than Whites by success reports in terms of improvement in performance, increase in positive adjectives for partner. Failure reports resulted in greater improvement in performance for Blacks and Whites when given by Blacks. Positive self and partner evaluation declined more for black Ss than for white Ss in a failure condition. All but one of the hypotheses were confirmed. (Author)
