ABSTRACT The retrospective evaluation of an event tends to be based on how the experience felt during the most intense moment and the last moment. Two experiments tested whether this so-called peak-end effect influences how primary school students are affected by peer assessments. In both experiments, children (ages 7–12) assessed two classmates on their behaviour in school and then received two manipulated assessments. In Experiment 1 (N  = 30), one assessment consisted of four negative…

No Peak-End Rule for Simple Positive Experiences Observed in Children and Adults

The effects of post-stimulus elaboration, background valence, and item salience on the emotion-induced memory trade-off

The emotion-induced memory trade-off may be a complex memory effect, which can be influenced by different factors to varying degrees, and post-stimulus elaboration contributed to selective memory enhancement for backgrounds, while item salience enhanced item memory performance in the memoryTrade-off.

Looking at Mental Effort Appraisals through a Metacognitive Lens: Are they Biased?

A central factor in research guided by the Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) is the mental effort people invest in performing a task. Mental effort is commonly assessed by asking people to report their

Associations between Emotion Regulation and Parental Reflective Functioning

It is found that mothers with higher tendencies to suppress their emotions and who had more difficulties with emotion regulation engaged in greater levels of pre-mentalizing, suggesting that emotion regulation should be integrated in empirical and intervention work that targets maternal mentalization.

The Role of Cognitive Emotion Regulation Strategies in Problem Gaming Among Adolescents: A Nationally Representative Survey Study

The relative predictive value of rumination for problematic online gaming varied for boys and girls, suggesting that trait rumination might be a gender-specific vulnerability factor for problematicOnline gaming, but this requires further investigation and replication.

Comparing recalled versus experienced symptoms of breathlessness ratings: An ecological assessment study using mobile phone technology

Over 1 week, recalled breathlessness is most strongly influenced by the peak breathlessness; over 1’day, it is mean breathlessness that participants most readily recalled.

A Review of Current Ambulatory Assessment Studies in Adolescent Samples and Practical Recommendations

This guide provides a checklist for reporting on AA studies in adolescent samples that can be used as a guideline for future studies and provides recommendations with regard to participant recruitment, sampling scheme, item selection, power analysis, and software choice.

Metacognition, Hardiness, and Grit as Resilience Factors in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Operations: A Simulation Study

Findings support both the metacognitive theory of anxiety and negative emotions (Wells and Matthews, 2015), and the Trait-Stressor-Outcome framework for resilience.

Mechanism of Cross-modal Information Influencing Taste

The hypothesis that the cognitive status is the key step for visual sense to exert influence on taste is discussed, to help researchers better understand the mechanism of cross-modal information processing and further develop neutrally-based artificial intelligent (AI) system.

Delta Change

Within the context of a fast-evolving environment, leaders enhance their capacity to respond to exponential change by attending to enduring ideas and big questions. For higher education leaders, a



Remembered Utility of Unpleasant and Pleasant Learning Experiences: Is All Well that Ends Well?

Summary Retrospective evaluation of the pain or pleasure associated with past episodes (i.e. remembered utility) is mainly determined by how the episodes felt when they were at their peak, and

Duration neglect in retrospective evaluations of affective episodes.

Benefits of film duration on retrospective evaluations were small, entirely explained by changes in real-time affect and further reduced when made from memory, as if duration did not matter.

Assessing Self- and Peer-assessment: The students' views

Self- and peer-assessment are being used increasingly in higher education, to help assign grades to students' work and to help students to learn more effectively. However, in spite of this trend

End Effects of Rated Life Quality: The James Dean Effect

It is consistently observed that participants neglected duration in judging the global quality of life, and embedding moderately intense years in the middle of life did not produce effects as strong as adding those years to the end of life.

Two experiments explored the remembered discomfort of an effortful learning experience and the influence of this evaluation on prospective study choices, suggesting that the act of acquiring knowledge has value in the learning process.

A contextual approach to the assessment of social skills: Identifying meaningful behaviors for social competence

An exploratory study was conducted which assessed behaviors that characterize social competence in the second and fifth grades. A contextual approach was used to gather information from second- and

Test-takers' bias in favor of test experiences that start or end on a high note is demonstrated, showing that a challenging test episode extended by a more moderate interval was preferred to an unextended interval, and future test choices reflected this preference.

Eyewitness memory for a touching experience: accuracy differences between child and adult witnesses.

Children, ages 5-6 and 9-10 years, and adults spent 6 min with a man (toucher) who administered a test that required interpersonal touch and provided a memory report that included free recall, answers to objective-memory questions, and two lineup identifications.

Evaluations of pleasurable experiences: The peak-end rule

There is strong evidence that the peak-end rule applies to both material goods and pain, and the impact of positivity and timing on the retrospective evaluations of material goods is investigated.
