dc.description.abstractThe relationships between rating accuracy and raters' levels of individualism and collectivism orientation and independent and interdependent self-identities, were investigated through a laboratory study. University students (N= 181) were asked to rate three potential teaching assistants on three performance dimensions related to lecturing skills. In addition to the main effects of raters' orientations and self-identities on five rating accuracy criteria, the moderating role of rating purpose (administrative vs. developmental) was investigated. Results indicated that collectivism was positively related to lower levels of differential accuracy and that rating purpose significantly moderated the relationship between raters' self-identity and lenient ratings. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed along with suggestions for future research.
