Abstract:This study applies to the perception of fairness during teamwork. Students were assigned to work groups by lot and were instructed to prepare a course presentation. Groups were given no guidelines relating to allocation of tasks, but each group was graded as a whole. Since a real grade was given in a non-simulated experiment, it was possible to determine team efficiency, work satisfaction, and perception of fairness via a subsequent study. Results show a strong influence of fairness on team efficiency.
