Abstract

Self-appraised job performance was studied in relation to supervisory ratings under those conditions in which self-evaluation is most likely to predict performance outcomes (Mabe & West, 1982). In contrast to previous research, there was no evidence of leniency error or restriction of range in self-appraised job performance. Convergence between self- and supervisory ratings was also evident, and was interpreted in light of the presence of halo error.
