An Effect of Knowledge of Results on Performance with Goal Setting Controlled.
Sanders, Mark S.; Freedman, Steven
Locke has concluded that motivational knowledge of results (KR) has no effect on performance if goal is controlled. Previous studies, however, always afforded to No KR groups some KR. In the present study a 2x2 factorial design (KR-No KR; low-high goal) was used. Stringent controls were instituted to eliminate all KR, in the No KR conditions. The results indicated that KR did have an effect on performance contrary to previous studies. (Author)
