Prior research on performance feedback has focused on the direct impact of performance feedback on risk taking (Lim & McCann, 2013) and paid little attention to the role of contextual factors. In particular, there are few empirical studies that examine how performance feedback and institutions interplay in risk taking of organizations. This study aims to fill this gap by investigating the role of organization-level institutional logics and state-level institutions in a microfinance industry. Institutions arise as a result of human beings continuous efforts to deal with uncertain environments (North, 1990; Scott, 1995). Thus, individual and organizational actors are affected by institutions, and different institutions can be a source of heterogeneity of organizational behavior (Peng, 2003). This suggests that the impact of performance feedback on risk taking can be affected by institutional factors. And, microfinance industry provides a good setting to investigate this issue.
Motor learning can be monitored by observing the development of neural correlates of error processing. Among these neural correlates, the error- and feedback-related negativity (Ne/ERN and FRN) represent error processing mechanisms. While the Ne/ERN is more related to error prediction, the FRN is found after an error is manifested. The questions the current study strives to answer are: What information is needed by the system to make error predictions and how is this represented by the Ne/ERN and FRN in a complex motor task? We reduced the information and increased the difficulty level for the prediction in a semivirtual throwing task and found no Ne/ERN but a large FRN when the action result was finally observed (hitting or missing a target). We assume that uncertainty for error prediction was too high (either due to insufficient information or due to lacking prerequisites for prediction), such that error processing had to be mainly based on feedback. The finding is in line with the ...
This study evaluates the addition of a quality improvement toolbox to an online audit and feedback intervention in Dutch intensive care units. The toolbox comprises for each quality indicator (e.g., percentage of patients per shift whose pain is measured) a list of potential bottlenecks in the care process (e.g., staff is unaware of the prevailing guidelines for measuring pain every shift), associated recommendations for actions to solve mentioned bottlenecks (e.g., organize an educational training session), and supporting materials to facilitate implementation of the actions (e.g., a slide show presentation discussing the importance and relevance of measuring pain every shift). Half of the participating intensive care units will only receive online feedback, while the other half will additionally gain access to the integrated toolbox to facilitate planning and executing actions ...

In the literature a lot of articles about so-called feedback-based trading strategies, i.e., strategies that compute investment exclusively from their own gain exist. Price is therein treated as a disturbance variable in the technical application. With these strategies, astonishing results may be shown. However, the so-called price taker property is always assumed, that means that ones own trading does not affect the price, which is quite unrealistic. In the work at hand, an interactive and thus more realistic market model is introduced which is completely determined by the traders decisions. In this market model, distinct groups of traders can interact, e.g., feedback traders and noise traders, as they are considered to be relevant in economics in explaining real market prices. Furthermore, this interactive market model is a natural generalization of the geometric Brownian motion. Of course the model has to be bubble-prone to be realistic. The market model will be analyzed as well as the ...

Surveys offer performance feedback to teachers. By Suzanne Bouffard. Most teachers are accustomed to feedback from principals and coaches, but some have started hearing from the people who know them best: students. Last year, over a million K-12 students took surveys developed by educational services companies to rate how well their teachers teach, and many others took locally developed surveys. A growing number of states and districts allow the use of these surveys as part of teacher evaluation systems, and a few even require their use. For example, student surveys account for 5 percent of teachers evaluation scores in Memphis and for 15 percent in the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Continue ...

A feedback-based adaptive network is described wherein at least a portion of the network elements report operating information relating to network conditions to a centralized data store. The information which is reported to the data store is analyzed by a policy engine which includes a plurality of application specific plug-in policies for analyzing selected information from the data store and for computing updated control information based upon the analysis of the information. The updated control information is fed back to selected network elements to thereby affect operation of the selected elements. Typically, when the operation of a network element has been affected, its corresponding operating information will change. The new or changed network element operating information is then reported to the data store and analyzed by the policy engine. The policy engine may then generate new or updated control information for affecting the operation of selected elements in the network. In this way, the

Our federally qualified health care center serves over 7000 diabetic patients, many of whom are uninsured (43%) or on medicaid (18%) or medicare (26%). The population is 54% Latino, 25% Caucasian, and 14% African American. We excluded patients older than 75; those without English or Spanish as a first language; and the homeless. The remaining 5457 patients were randomized to this one-year study which ended January 1, 2009. One-half of the enrolled patients received quarterly mailed report cards on their HgA1c, blood pressure, and lipid performance. They were asked to pick from a list of self-management goals and to see their provider if their last visit was more than 2 months prior to the mailing. In a 2x2 design, our eight clinics were randomized to i) on-site printing of patient report cards or no on-site printing and ii) standard provider performance report cards or enhanced provider report cards. The standard provider report cards included data on provider performance on HgA1c, LDL, and ...
Downloadable! This study proposes a managerial accounting research design that bridges a gap between firm productivity based on frontier techniques and strategic management. In doing so, it operationalizes the theoretical frameworks based on the endogenous components of across-firms heterogeneous resources and routines, which are fundamental for firm performance. The design focuses on industry-level benchmarking to analyze changes in performance and organizational knowledge investments, and proposes some indicators for firm-level strategic benchmarking. An analysis of a twelve-years panel of the U.S. technology hardware and equipment industry illustrates the usefulness of the proposals. Findings reveal wider gaps between better and worse performers following economic distress. Increasing intangibles stocks is positively associated with changes in frontier benchmarking, while enhancing R&D spending is linked to frontier shifts. The discussion develops managerial interpretations suitable for control and
Keeping the commoners happy is easy when you have pharmacology on your side. Complex caste systems exist throughout the animal kingdom, but is it purely social feedback that keeps us all in our places? Vergoz, Shreurs and Mercer report that a pheromone prevents worker honeybees from forming aversive associations while they serve the queen in a recent article in Science.. In the honeybee society, the females do all of the work. Young females attend to the queen and her hive. Later in life, they leave the hive to collect nectar and pollen (the average honeybee lifespan is 4-6 weeks). Queen mandibular pheromone (QMP), which is produced by the queen and transferred to the rest of the hive by her caretakers, prevents the ovarian development of other females.. Honeybees show both appetitive (positively reinforced) and aversive (negatively reinforced) learning. In response to odors, honeybees can be trained to extend their tongues in anticipation of a sweet reward or extend their stingers in ...
The guidelines and suggestions from these resources are summarized in the following list of effective evaluation practices:. 1. Clearly communicate evaluation criteria to supervisees and develop a mutually agreed upon written contract reflecting these criteria.. 2. Identify and communicate supervisee strengths and weaknesses. The Ethical Guidelines for Counsellor Supervisors (ACES, 1993) recommend that supervisors provide supervisees with ongoing feedback on their performance. This performance feedback establishes for supervisees a clear sense of what they do well and which skills need to be developed. Supervisee strengths and weaknesses can be evaluated in terms of process, conceptual, personal, and professional skills (Bernard R Goodyear, 1992, p. 42).. 3. Use constructive feedback techniques during evaluations. Supervisees are more likely to hear corrective feedback messages when these are preceded by positive feedback, focussed on observable behaviours, and are delayed until a positive ...
Background: An individuals current status of physical activity and nutrition and readiness to change can be determined using PACE assessment forms. Practitioners have suggested that feedback on the fitness and health components can produce a change in a subjects awareness of their behaviour and thereby lead to a beneficial change in stage of behaviour change. Objective: To evaluate the short term effect of personalised feedback on fitness and health status on self reported appraisal of the stage of change. Methods: A total of 299 civil servants were randomised to an intervention or a reference group. After having been tested for fitness and health, the intervention group received immediate feedback on their test results, whereas the reference group did not. PACE assessment forms were completed twice: before testing and after testing (reference group), or after testing and feedback (intervention group). The time interval between was one hour. The influence of feedback was determined using a x2 ...

Tailored feedback was rated as more relevant, and was more likely to be shown to the GP than the generic feedback. Given that the tailored feedback included personalised risk factor information, it is not surprising that it was rated as more relevant. Almost two-thirds of participants given the tailored feedback indicated that they either showed the feedback to their GP or it gave them some ideas about what to ask the doctor, compared to less than half of those who received generic feedback. Anecdotally, the tailored feedback prompted a greater response from participants than the generic feedback, including several who were surprised by their recommended healthy weight, and one participant who commented that seeing her depression score prompted her to bring this up with her GP. However, participants did not rate the tailored feedback as any more likely to help them improve their health, or any easier to understand, than the generic feedback.. The type of feedback did not appear to influence ...
Background: Psychotherapy is successful for the majority of patients , but not for every patient. Hence, further knowledge is needed on how treatments should be adapted for those who do not profit or deteriorate. In the last years prediction tools as well as feedback interventions were part of a trend to more personalized approaches in psychotherapy. Research on psychometric prediction and feedback into ongoing treatment has the potential to enhance treatment outcomes, especially for patients with an increased risk of treatment failure or drop-out.rnMethods/design: The research project investigates in a randomized controlled trial the effectiveness as well as moderating and mediating factors of psychometric feedback to therapists. In the intended study a total of 423 patients, who applied for a cognitive-behavioral therapy at the psychotherapy clinic of the University Trier and suffer from a depressive and/or an anxietyrndisorder (SCID interviews), will be included. The patients will be randomly
To explore the neural correlates of reward processing when expected reward is a function of stimulus salience and value, we conducted a study that systematically manipulated these two dimensions while collecting EEGs from subjects instructed to harvest as much reward as possible. We found that for trials following low reward, feedback-locked ERP amplitudes were more negative in an early time window and more positive in a late window (Fig. 3). We interpret this ERP modulation as a manifestation of FRN, with the result similar to those of other feedback valence studies (Yasuda et al., 2004; Hajcak et al., 2005; Cohen et al., 2007), though the typical FRN is reported in terms of a difference in reward gains versus losses. In our experimental design, we ruled out the impact of penalty/loss and focused only on reward delivery and omission. This observation is also consistent with previous studies on the modulation of reward magnitude on feedback ERP components, which show more negative early ERP when ...
The latest report predicts the most likely Brexit outcome is a "compromise deal" whereby an agreement is reached on citizen rights, the Irish border and the financial settlement towards in autumn 2018 and the UK makes smaller contributions to the EU akin to what Switzerland pays.. However, the report considers "no deal" and a deal with "ambitious policies" alternative outcomes.. Within financial services, the report plays down the loss of passporting, arguing it represents less than 10 per cent of financial services, but says the loss of euro clearing is a bigger concern.. Head of investment communications Mitchell Fraser-Jones says the fund house finds the reports conclusions "reassuring".. "It reinforces our confidence that the portfolios are positioned appropriately for the long-term outcomes that are forecast," Fraser-Jones says.. Life sciences, for example, an important part of Woodfords portfolios, enjoy upside from post-Brexit deregulation under the reports base case scenario with the ...

Over the past few weeks, I have been receiving many calls about bagworms in area trees. This is the time of year that they are the most visible since the identifying bag that they will overwinter in is large enough to see from a distance. Also, their feeding habits may have defoliated a few branches making them even easier to see. Although bagworms are much easier to control in late May or the end of June when they are smaller, as long as the insect is still feeding on the foliage, they can be controlled. Here is a brief write-up ... ...
