Sociocognitive Biases in the Evaluation Process.
Perloff, Richard M.; And Others
New Directions for Program Evaluation, n7 p11-26 1980
Causes of evaluator bias are: overemphasizing concrete, salient, and retrievable information; reporting only evidence which confirms hypothesis; focusing on stable personality factors, rather than on situation and environment; developing positive perceptions of a program as both an evaluator and a highly involved participant; statistical naivete; ex post facto judgement; and deadline pressures.
