Nakanishi, Masayuki
Small Group Behavior, v19 n1 p35-55 Feb 1988
Investigated effects of group motivation on group task performance. Created two levels of valence, expectancy and instrumentality. Valence variable reflected on group productivity on unstructured and task persistence measures. Expectancy variable's effect was on task persistence measure. Instrumentality affected group productivity on structured task. For all variables, high scoring groups performed better. (Author/KS)
