But, again, this is really just a difference in emphasis, not a difference in the fundamental view of the appraisal process. Thus, I want to end this chapter by noting that our model receives all the attention in this book not because there is any reason to think it is superior to other models discussed. For better or worse, it is simply the model that guided the research program I am going to discuss. Chapter 2 A cognitive model of the appraisal process As noted in Chapter 1, for many years the research in performance appraisal tended to focus upon rating scale formats and rater training—usually aimed at reducing psychometric errors.
At the time, this suggested the possibility that the way raters gathered or obtained (or attended to) information would also affect evaluations. Others had, of course, discussed information sampling as well, but had not fully integrated it into a larger model of rater information processing. Whitlock (1963), though, reported reliable relationships between the number of performance incidents a rater observed for a given ratee, and the ratings he/she would give to that ratee. In one final piece of data that I drew upon, Gordon (1970) had reported that raters were able to more accurately rate behavior that was “correct” relative to job requirements, than behavior that was incorrect.
Even if two raters are observing the same ratee then, if they engage in different information search or acquisition activities, they will have different information available to them, and so will likely arrive at different evaluations. The information in question might be in the form of actual behavior, products, or outcomes, or it might consist of evaluations provided by others. , Einhorn & Hogarth, 1981; Slovic & Lichtenstein, 1971) had pointed out that much of the research in decision making had been focused on how decision makers integrated information, but had ignored how they acquired information.
