The principle of encoding specificity states that
effective information retrieval relies upon consistency of
encoding and retrieval cues. The present study generalized
this principle to a complex social interaction in order to investigate the relation between certain combinations of pre-
and post-observational cues and their effects on information
categorization, recognition accuracy, and judgment accuracy.
It was hypothesized that two experimental factors, appraisal
purpose and rating format categorization, would influence
organization, retrieval, and judgment of performance
information. Specifically, consistent encoding (purpose) and
retrieval (format) cues were expected to result in the most
efficient retrieval of information, and consequently in more
accurate performance ratings.
