Abstract : Possible determinants of the accuracy of self-ratings of performance are discussed. The relationships of past experience on the task, locus of control, and dispositional private and public self focus to self ratings is explored in two correlational studies using different tasks. Private self-focus sometimes results in less accurate self-rating, contrary to the hypothesis. A third study manipulates self-rating accuracy. Keywords: Performance appraisal, Self-assessment, Rating accuracy, Focus of attention.
