Contrast Effects in Evaluating Essays.
Daly, John A.; Dickson-Markman, Fran
Journal of Educational Measurement, v19 n4 p309-16 Win 1982
The effect of the quality of preceding essays on judgments of the quality of a subsequent essay was investigated. Inservice teachers as judges failed to produce consistently and unambiguously biased judgments. Results suggest the presence of a positive bias and the absence of a negative bias. (Author/PN)
