Performance feedback has been widely used to improve performance, motivate employees, and increase organizational effectiveness. However, feedback research has yielded mixed results, ranging from improving performance to decreasing performance. The present study examined the impact of feedback perceptions on a unique sample, university art students, on fairness perceptions and subsequent performance.
Seventy-one art students at a western public university were surveyed immediately following a critique on a draft of their artwork. Feedback was measured by duration and positivity and converted into ratio format for analysis through hierarchical regression. Feedback acceptance and perceptions on fairness of feedback were surveyed. Final versions of the art project scores were collected at the end of the academic semester. In contrast to expectations, perceptions of fairness and feedback acceptance were neither significant moderators nor mediators of performance.
