    • 1. Experimental Task
    • 2. Instructions: You will now review the same scenarios from the morality test you have already taken. You will have 30 seconds to review each scenario. After you have reviewed each scenario, you will then be shown a number of advice statements suggesting alternative ways of considering the moral issues described in the scenario, in order to improve your test performance. Each advice statement has been endorsed by another student, who has also taken the same test. You will have nine seconds to view each advice statement, along with the advisor’s score. After viewing each advice statement, your job will then be to assess the utility of each statement, and indicate your assessment on the scoring sheet provided. You will not have a chance to review any statements for which you did not provide a response. Be sure to think carefully about each statement before scoring. Some statements appear more than once. Inconsistent assessments of repeated statements may significantly reduce your compensation for participating.
