Using Feedback To Reduce Students' Judgment Bias on Test Questions.
Flannelly, Laura T.
Journal of Nursing Education, v40 n1 p10-16 Jan 2001
Between administrations of a test, 36 nursing students were given a practice test and answer key that provided feedback; 30 were not. Those who performed poorly on the test were more overconfident about answers to hard questions. This judgment bias can be reduced by providing feedback about their performance and confidence.
