EFFECTS OF AMOUNT OF PRIOR SUCCESS AND FAILURE ON EXPECTATIONS OF SUCCESS AND SUBSEQUENT TASK PERFORMANCE.

96 SS WORKED AT A 13-ITEM ANAGRAM TEST. SUCCESS AND FAILURE WERE MANIPULATED IN THE 1ST 3 ITEMS OF THE TEST IN THE 8 PATTERNS POSSIBLE. 1/2 THE SS WERE TOLD THAT THE ANAGRAMS WERE EASIER THAN MOST (HIGH EXPECTATION) AND 1/2 THAT THEY WERE MORE DIFFICULT THAN MOST (LOW EXPECTATION). ALL SS RATED THEIR CHANCES OF SUCCESS BEFORE ATTEMPTING EACH ANAGRAM. THE LAST 10 ANAGRAMS WERE OF APPROXIMATELY 50% DIFFICULTY. MEASURES OF N ACHIEVEMENT AND TEST ANXIETY WERE AVAILABLE PRIOR TO TASK PERFORMANCE. RATINGS OF ANXIETY AND DISAPPOINTMENT WERE OBTAINED FROM A POSTPERFORMANCE QUESTIONNAIRE. RESULTS SHOWED THAT (1) PROBABILITY ESTIMATES WERE MODIFIED BY TASK PERFORMANCE, SHIFTING MORE AFTER PREDOMINANT FAILURE THAN AFTER PREDOMINANT SUCCESS; (2) THE SMALL AMOUNT OF PRIOR EXPERIENCE HAD LOCALIZED EFFECTS ON SUBSEQUENT PERFORMANCE; AND (3) RATINGS OF ANXIETY AND DISAPPOINTMENT WERE NEGATIVELY RELATED TO TASK PERFORMANCE. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Personality and Social Psychology PsycARTICLES®
