Title: Receiving feedback in a social context: The role of goal-orientation
Author: Tonidandel, Scott

Abstract: The present study examined the relationship between feedback and subsequent task performance in a social context. Participants performed three trials of a decision-making task interrupted by two group discussion periods. Social process variables, such as influence, expertise, and perceived competence, were found to impact the feedback-performance relationship. In addition, goal-orientation was found to moderate individuals' reactions to the feedback. Results also suggested that goal-orientation moderated the effect of social processes on performance, but the findings were not consistent. These moderating relationships are potential explanations for enhancing or attenuating effects of feedback on performance.
