The research supported on the grant provided one of the first sustained research efforts to investigate performance appraisal processes as they relate to the accuracy of ratings. The work on the information gathering stage of this process produced perhaps the clearest findings indicating that conditions do exist which influence the amount of time people spend observing the behaviors of others and suggesting ways to modify conditions or train individuals to insure more adequate sampling of behavior prior to rating. The research on cognitive category systems used in rating was interesting from the standpoint that it represented one of the first attempts to try to assess the nature to the category systems used by raters in field settings.
