Feedback Effects In Intrinsic/Extrinsic Reward Paradigms
This study examines the effects of redundant feedback on intrinsic motivation to perform a task. Specifically it examines the effect of performancefeedback where there is task closure sufficient to indicate success orfailure to the individualperforming the task. Suchfeedback is characteristic of many intrinsiclextrinsic reward paradigms. The results indicate that redundant task performance feedback may not yield positive effects on attitudinal measures of intrinsic motivation. Such effects appear to be assumed in the literature.
