Oh, Hanna; Beck, Jeffrey M.; Zhu, Pingping; Sommer, Marc A.; Ferrari, Silvia; Egner, Tobias – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016

It is thought that humans overcome these limitations through "satisficing," fast but "good-enough" heuristic decision making that prioritizes some sources of…

Nata, Gil; Pereira, Maria João; Neves, Tiago – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, 2014
Fairness in access to HE is unarguably a subject of paramount importance. Wherever a student's secondary school scores are relevant for access to HE, grade inflation practices may jeopardize fair access.
