An Examination of the Effects of Situational Constraints on Appraised Performance.
Freeman, Kimberly A.
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v9 n3 p65-79 1996
To examine the magnitude of situational constraint "bias," 30 juniors, seniors, and graduate students were asked to assess situational constraints and performance for up to 5 instructors. Results indicated that this bias is considerably stronger than previous reports had indicated and may be the dominant source of fairness in performance appraisals. Five tables show results. (AEF)
