Metcalfe, Arron W. S.; Campbell, Jamie I. D. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2011
Accurate measurement of cognitive strategies is important in diverse areas of psychological research. Strategy self-reports are a common measure, but C. Thevenot, M. Fanget, and M. Fayol (2007) proposed a more objective method to distinguish different strategies in the context of mental arithmetic. In their operand recognition paradigm, speed of…
