Advice utilization and decision performance under random advice /

Özarslan, Ali
The importance of advice taking in decision making has been arising for two and a half decades. The existing research in advice taking has suggested numerous measurement techniques that are utilized under different types of advice such as random advice and perfect advice. In this thesis using the random advice framework, through an experimental design, I compare some of formula-based, regression-based and scale-based techniques of advice utilization that are widely used in judgment tasks and test the decision performance of decision makers based on advice utilization. Results and general findings derived from these experiments are summarized and suggestions for future research on advice taking are offered.


Rassal tavsiyeden yararlanma ve karar performansı
Özarslan, Ali (2016-04-01)
Karar alırken tavsiye almanın önemi son 30 yıldır gitgide artmaktadır. Öneri alma konusundaki mevcut çalışmalar tavsiye kullanımıyla ilgili rasgele veya doğru tavsiye gibi farklı tavsiye türlerini göz önünde bulundurarak çeşitli numerik teknikler kullanmışlardır. Bu çalışmada rasgele tavsiye metodu kulanılmış ve deney çalışması yoluyla yargısal tahminlerde çokça kullanılan numerik teknikler (formül-tabanlı, regresyon-tabanlı ve ölçek-tabanlı) karşılaştırılmış ve insanların ön...

Uncertainty accompanies almost every situation in our lives and it influences our decisions. On many occasions uncertainty is so severe that we can only predict some upper and lower bounds for the outcome of our (collaborative) actions, i.e., payoffs lie in some intervals. Cooperative interval games have been proved useful for solving reward/cost sharing problems in situations with interval data in a cooperative environment. In this paper we propose two procedures for cooperative interval games. Both transf...
Organizational memory formation and its use in construction
Ozorhon, B; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (Informa UK Limited, 2005-01-01)
As knowledge becomes a source of competitive advantage, knowledge-management activities have become critical for success. Construction firms can effectively use their organizational memory to enhance their decision-making abilities. A framework was constructed to model the organizational memory formation process in construction companies. Based on this model, an interview study was conducted to investigate both the organizational memory formation and the role of organizational memory in strategic decision-m...
A collaborative learning approach to dialogic peer feedback: a theoretical framework
Er, Erkan; Gasevic, Dragan (2020-06-01)
Feedback has a powerful influence on learning. However, feedback practices in higher education often fail to produce the expected impact on learning. This is mainly because of its implementation as a one-way transmission of diagnostic information where students play a passive role as the information receivers. Dialogue around feedback can enhance students' sense making from feedback and capacities to act on it. Yet, dialogic feedback has been mostly implemented as an instructor-led activity, which is hardly...
Dynamical aspects of decision making under uncertainty
Taşkın, Kemal; Gökçay, Didem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2016)
Decision making is defined as the mental process of choosing among a set of alternatives. Although several aspects of decision making have been investigated so far in cognitive science, dynamics of this process as a whole remained to be studied in detail. In this context, we investigated the effects of consecutive decisions on the current decision in a decision making task under uncertainty. In the attempt of elaborating these effects, we analyzed responses of participants to risky choices in two experiment...
