9780140801187: Feedback and Human Behaviour: The Effects of Knowledge of Results, Incentives and Reinforcement on Learning and Performance (Penguin Science of Behaviour, Skills, Learning)

The concept of feedback or information about the results of actions, is central to our understanding of behaviour. When a student is told the result of a test, a golfer sees his ball fall into the rough of or a pieceworker gets his paycheck, he is getting knowledge of results. There are few actions which have no perceptible result and in most cases knowledge of results is important to the performer and will affect his future behavior. The book summarizes seventy years of research in motor, perceptual and verbal performance and examines the theoretical bases of the incentive, reinforcement and informative functions of knowledge of results. Feedback and Human Behaviour, although intended primarily as a text for students of psychology, deserves the attention of teachers, industrialists and economists and indeed all who are concerned with teaching and testing, and distributing incentives and rewards. --- from book's back cover
