Table 1 Outcome contingencies used in Experiment 4

From: Causal illusions in the classroom: how the distribution of student outcomes can promote false instructional beliefs

  High-OD Low-OD
High-magnitude Low-magnitude High-magnitude Low-magnitude
Novel teaching 0.3 0.2 0.1 0.4
Ordinary teaching 0.4 0.1 0.2 0.3
  1. Note: The low-magnitude distribution had a mean of 20, the high-magnitude distribution had a mean of 80 (both SD = 5). Cells represent the number of trial from each sample and whether the cue was present (Δp = 0)
