    Goldie Rotman Center for Cognitive Science and Education, School of Education, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel
    J Exp Psychol Gen 131:287-97. 2002
    ..Results of 5 experiments show that people use sample variability, uncorrected for sample size, in tasks in which a correction is normatively called for, and indeed perceive variability as smaller than it is...

    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 37:1595-8. 2011
    ..However, whereas Evans and Buehner only reiterate this point (and present it as novel), we continue from there and show that small samples are likely to result in clear data...

    Psychon Bull Rev 18:103-9. 2011
    ..A regression analysis revealed that, in addition, individuals' decision criteria reflected their learning experiences, with the weight of hits being greater than that of correct rejections...

    ..In the second, in which the contribution of contingency over base rate is manipulated, they study participants' willingness to forgo a costly predictor. Results indicate a close correspondence between ExpPA and behavior...

    Yaakov Kareev
    The Center for the Study of Rationality, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel
    Psychol Sci 18:636-41. 2007

    School of Education and Center for Rationality, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel
    Psychol Sci 17:715-20. 2006
    ..People's sampling behavior thus resembles that of a research designer who maximizes the chance of detecting a relationship, at the cost of diminished accuracy in estimating its strength...
