EXPECTANCY, MOTIVATION TO ACHIEVE, AND RECALL IN PERFORMANCE
Abstract:Two groups of paid female students were employed in a modified Aronson and Carlsmith (1962) expectancy-performance design. Fifty-three Ss were in the Low-High condition, 59 were in the Low-Low condition. Overall results did not support predictions derived from dissonance theory. However, results supporting dissonance theory were obtained when expectancies, motivation to achieve and forgetting of individual Ss were systematically evaluated on an a priori basis.
