Journal of Education for Business, v93 n4 p155-164 2018
Employees are increasingly using mobile applications for performance appraisals. Using 117 working master of business administration students engaged in team-based class projects, the authors utilized a new mobile app, DevelapMe, to provide team peers with real-time feedback. The authors investigated the correlates of state goal orientation. Using openness to receiving critical feedback, three reliable sender-based scales were found: sender explain, trust sender, and sender identify self. All three scales had a significant positive relationship to learning goal orientation, two of three with prove performance goal orientation, and none with avoid performance goal orientation. Practice in receiving peer-based real-time feedback can prepare students for using such mobile apps at work.
