Self-Enhancing Effect of Social Feedback on Cognitive Task Performance.
Waldie, Karen E.; Mosley, James L.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v100 n6 p620-31 May 1996
The influence of feedback on the cognitive task performance of 30 adults with mental retardation having either high or low self-esteem was assessed. All subjects performed two memory tasks (easy, difficult) under one of three feedback conditions (social, computer, and no feedback). Social feedback was most effective in altering the positive relation between self-esteem and cognitive task performance. (Author/DB)
