Abstract

[see journal for abstract] summary provided here:
In the present paper, we measure the effectiveness of two specific instructions on RD that have been used and challenged in the US. These are described in more detail below. We examine the effect of the two instructions on people’s quantitative interpretations of the standard, as well as the degree of inter- and intra-individual variability in interpretations. In addition, we attempt to explain the effectiveness of these instructions by examining the effect of their precise wording on interpretations of RD.
