Shatz, Mark A.; Best, John B.
Teaching of Psychology, v14 n4 p241-42 Dec 1987
Investigates the circumstances under which answer changing is beneficial or detrimental to test performance. Analyzes the success of answer changing in relation to the reasons offered for changing. Concludes that students who reported guessing as their reason for changing answers were not nearly as likely to benefit from changing as were students who reported other reasons. (Author/GEA)
