Judgment and decision making : an interdisciplinary reader( Book )

29 editions published between 1986 and 2000 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Researchers in a growing number of fields - public policy, law, business, medicine, psychology, engineering, and others - are working to understand and improve human judgment and decision making. This book, which presupposes no formal training, brings together a selection of key articles in the area, with careful organization, introductions, and commentaries. Issues include medical diagnosis, weather forecasting, labor negotiations, risk, public policy, business strategy, eyewitness testimony, and more." "This is a revised edition of the 1986 collection of papers, Judgment and Decision Making, edited by Hal Arkes and Ken Hammond. The focus of this updated and extended volume is interdisciplinary and applied. The papers selected are scientific in nature, but chosen to appeal to the scholar, student, and layperson alike."--Jacket
Introduction to the statistical method; foundations and use in the behavioral sciences by Kenneth R Hammond( Book )

34 editions published between 1962 and 1970 in English and held by 762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was our aim to write a book which addresses itself to the logic of the statistical method for its own sake, and it was our purpose to show and explain to the student one of man's greater rational accomplishments irrespective of whether the student might expect to find immediate application of his knowledge. Thus, we do not limit ourselves to the preparation of a book of formulas by which answers may be ground out with little or no understanding of the processes involved. We explain and discuss, for example, not seven or eight different methods of correlation, but only two methods. However, we discuss these two in detail, because we believe that when the student understands the principles underlying these, he will understand the special varieties of correlation when and if he has occasion to make use of them. In short, we address ourselves not only to the student who may have an occasion to calculate a mean or a correlation coefficient, who may take the advanced course for which statistics is a prerequisite, and who may carry out a graduate thesis, but also (and primarily) we address ourselves to the student who wishes to undertake an adventure of the mind and to the instructor who wishes to conduct the expedition."

Judgments under stress by Kenneth R Hammond( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judgments Under Stress" presents a new and exciting approach to understanding the effects of stressful conditions on judgment and decision making -- a topic so important it was addressed in a Congressional Hearing in 1988. Consisting mainly of two parts, the book synthesizes a vast body of cognitive psychology research into an innovative theoretical framework. Part I provides the reader with background in regards to judgment under stress while Part II discusses a new approach to studying it. Author Kenneth Hammond extends his examination from the effects of stress on professional judgments to its effects on moral and political judgments, working out a conceptual framework wholly within a psychological context. The book also includes discussions on sleep deprivation, fatigue, noise, heat, shock, and time pressure. In addition to laboratory experiments, Hammond looks at real life historical events such as Iran Flight 655 and the Cuban Missile Crisis. "Judgments Under Stress" provides a shrewd analysis of the effects of stress on human rationale, making it ideal for professional psychologists as well as for those interested in political science and social policy

For anyone concerned about the current state of politics in the United States and where it will lead us, Beyond Rationality is required reading."--Jacket

The Colorado report on the integration of approaches to judgment and decision making by Kenneth R Hammond( Book )

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report attempts to take a first step toward the integration of six major approaches to judgment and decision making. These six approaches (and their major spokesmen) can be identified as follows: (a) Decision theory (Ralph Keeney and Howard Raiffa), (b) Behavioral Decision Theory (Ward Edwards), (c) Psychological Decision Theory (Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, Social Judgment Theory (Kenneth Hammond), (e) Information Integration Theory (Norman Anderson), and (f) Attribution Theory (E.E. Jones and Harold Kelley). The report attempts to provide a broad, theoretically neutral, systematic framework intended to permit and encourage the discovery of a 'kinship system' within which the relationship of each approach to every other approach can be determined. The report is divided into three major sections, theory, method, and procedure within which each of the six approaches are examined. The theory section deals with the six approaches in terms of their origins, scope, intended function, principal concepts, loci of concepts, and intended use. The method section examines each approach's basic methodology with respect to idiographic versus nomothetic analysis, sampling domains, object decomposition, judgment decomposition, aids for decision makers, and methodological claims. The procedure section focuses on description and comparison of the operational definition that each approach provides for the important concepts identified in the theory section
Effects of stress on judgment and decision making by Kenneth R Hammond( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph (Part II) is the second of a planned three-part series. Following Part I, which examines four literatures related to judgment and decision making (J/DM) under stress, Part II narrows its focus to a detailed treatment of stress within the J/DM literature. Six sections are included: (a) an introduction, bridging Parts I and II, (b) a consideration of two principal topics (rationality and performance) in the J/DM literature in relation to stress, (c) an examination of current textbooks, anthologies, and reviews, as well as books and articles in the human factors field, with regard to their treatment of stress and J/DM, (d) a description of current J/DM theories and models and their potential utility for the study of J/DM under stress, (e) an examination of methodological issues bearing on research on J/DM under stress, and (f) the outline of a new approach intended to advance theory and method. The general conclusion drawn from the examination of the aforementioned material (including an additional several hundred articles not cited) is the same as that drawn from the work in Part I, namely, research is lacking in coherent theoretical background, diffuse in content, and completely lacking in secure generalizations. If progress is to be made with regard to this topic, critically important to the military and other sections of society, a resolute, comprehensive effort will have to be made, theoretically, methodologically, and empirically. Part III (forthcoming) will consist of an attempt to meet these goals
