! We need to come up with an experimental design.

We want to compare the general performance of individuals to their confidence. ! There are many ways this can be done.

Individual question confidence levels.

Look for a correlation between the confidence of a response and its accuracy.

A post test survey asking for the individual to evaluate their general confidence in their activities.

On a scale from 0-4 (or 1 to 5), for each question. We can compare individual question accuracy with question confidence and also compare overall performance with overall confidence.

We may also have a post group discussion about the exam. Individuals need to take a survey before and after the discussion and evaluate the change in confidence and compare it to the individualʼs accuracy.
