Social identity theory suggests that demographic similarity in rater-ratee dyads could bias assessor ratings. Does assessor-assessee similarity influence AC dimension scores, so that assessors assign higher dimension ratings to individuals that are demographically similar to themselves?
H3: Raters will rate same-race ratees higher than other ratees(Same-race positive bias).
Or: same race bias will not occur/same race negative bias will occur.
H1: Raters will rate same-sex ratees higher than they rate other ratees (Same-sex positive bias).
Or: same sex bias will not occur/same sex negative bias will occur.
