Abstract

Different biases occur in structured interviews. We will be examining two important biases: primary and recency effects. Both of which can influence an interviewer’s response based on when information is presented. We will examine difference in ratings of a fictitious applicant due to order of question/answer placement. Also, participant’s level of need for cognition will be measured as a moderating variable for primacy and recency effects.
