Abstract

The purpose of this study was to study the effect of presence versus absence of time pressure on some individual variables in probabilistic reasoning, concerning problems in verbal-numerical and in graphical-pictorial format. Italian undergraduates were assessed to understand these relationships as regards abilities, attitudes, anxiety and confidence. The effect of time pressure on performance has been different in the two formats of problem presentation.
