In the last few chapters the effects of the experimenter's expectancy on his subjects' responses was considered. This chapter reverses the direction of the predictions and considers the effects of the subjects' responses on the experimenter's expectancy. Except in the most exploratory of experimental enterprises, the experimenter's expectancies are likely to be based upon some sort of observed data. These data need not have been formally acquired. They may derive from quite casual observations of behavior made by the experimenter himself or even by another observer.

Keywords:   experimenter expectancy, subject response, expectancy effects, observed data
