Norms controlling how members deal with performance strategies were altered experimentally in small task-oriented groups. The basic task required assembly of small electrical components. In one task condition equal information all task-relevant information was provided to each group member in another unequal information it was spread unevenly among members, requiring exchange of information for optimum group performance. Measures of interaction process and of member reactions to the group were obtained, and were affected substantially by the experimental interventions.
