CONTRAST ERROR

a kind of rating error wherein the analysis of an objective individual in a set of people is impacted by the degree of functioning of other people in the set. Whenever the other people demonstrate high functionality, there might be a propensity to rate the objective person lower than what is accurate. When the other people are low in functionality, there might be a propensity to rate the objective individual higher than is accurate.
