Interactive Guided Readingon a CD for Distance Learners

Ruth Beyth-Marom, Shahar Ayal and Alit Epstein

The Open University of Israel

slide2

The course

  • Judgment and evaluation under conditions of uncertainty
  • An advanced seminar in Psychology, Management and Economics
slide3

It includes

  • An introduction
  • A reader (25 articles)
  • A study guide for the reader:
    • detailed guided reading of two articles
    • questions, answers and minor guidance for all other articles
slide4

The CD

Replaces the detailed guided reading of one article:

Tversky, A. and Kahneman, D. (1974). Judgment under uncertainty: Heuristics and biases. Science, 185, 1124-1131

slide5

Why is the article difficult?

  • An empirical, theoretical and review article
  • Presents the principles of intuitive thinking vis-a vis normative models
  • Requires understanding of statistical principles and research methods
  • Personal experience is necessary
slide6

Why is the article difficult?

  • The article is in English (a foreign language for students)
  • It is a condensed article which presents many new concepts which will be further discussed in the next steps of the course
slide7

Past solutions

  • In the reader the article was divided into sections and paragraphs
  • In the study guide the guided reading included:
    • Introduction to each part
    • Complex issues were clarified
    • New terms were explained
slide8

Past solutions

  • In the study guide the guided reading included:
    • Statistical issues were cleared or linked to other sources
    • Questions and answers were added for practice and self-testing
    • Before reading the article, students were asked to answer a questionnaire, administer it to 20 other students, and summarize the results.
slide9

What Happened?

  • Most students didn't respond to the questionnaire and didn't administer it.
  • Students didn't like to work simultaneously with two reading sources: the reader and the study guide.
  • Few students read the article actively as the material provided for them.

Insensitivity to prior probability of outcomes

Insensitivity tosample size

Misconceptions of chance

Insensitivity to predictability

The illusion of validity

Misconceptions of regression

Availability

Biases due to the retrievabilityof instances

Biases due to the effectiveness of a search set

Biases of imaginability

Illusory correlation

Adjustment and anchoring

Insufficient adjustment

Biases in the evaluationof conjunctive and disjunctive events

Anchoring in theassessment of subjective probability distributions

About the CD

Article

slide12

50% of the babies born are boys. The exact percentage of boys may differ from one day to another. Some days there are more than 50% boys, some days there are fewer than 50% and some days there are exactly 50%.

During the last year, in each hospital, on each day, the percentage of boys was calculated.

slide13

Try and estimate in which hospital (during the year) there were more days when the percentage of boys was over 60%.

The small one No difference The large one

slide14
