Abstract

Dyadic-meta accuracy is the ability to know what others think of oneself. Previous research found that group members know who likes them, but not who competes against them. We aimed to conceptually replicate this finding and to explore if students in academic groups can correctly evaluate the academic motivations of their peers, which we termed perceived motivational accuracy. We found strong dyadic meta-accuracy for liking, but not for competitiveness. We also found no significant association between perceived and actual motivations to learn, or between perceived and actual motivations to earn a grade. These results conceptually replicate previous findings of dyadic meta-accuracy and suggest that students do not demonstrate perceived motivational accuracy, potentially explaining one difficulty in reaching collective group understandings.
