Letters of Reference: A Naturalistic Study of the Effects of Confidentiality.
Ceci, Stephen; Peters, Douglas
American Psychologist, v39 n1 p29-31 Jan 1984
Purported graduate school applicants requested their faculty advisors to complete letter of recommendation forms. The forms had identical questions, but two were marked the same--either "confidential" or "nonconfidential"--and the other was oppositely marked. Significant differences in faculty responses were found, with students rated lower on "confidential" forms. (GC)
