The results from a collaboration with Delphine Sasanguie on the relation between metacognition and math anxiety are now out in Psychological Research. In this study, we investigated the relation between mathematical anxiety and metacognition about mathematical decision making. We asked participants to evaluate difficult mathematical assignments, and rate their confidence ‘before’ seeing the answer (prospective confidence) and ‘after’ making a choice (retrospective confidence).
