ABSTRACT
A study of the reactions of workers to evaluations by their peers found that negative peer rating feedback produced significantly lower perceived performance, cohesiveness, satisfaction, and peer ratings on a subsequent task. Positive peer rating feedback produced higher but nonsignificant values for these variables on a subsequent task.
