Summary In many cognitive psychology experiments, researchers ask their experimental subjects to make retrospective confidence ratings, judgments that estimate the likelihood that a response provided earlier was correct. Despite the ubiquity of these ratings in the laboratory, there is little scientific consensus on the ideal way to implement confidence ratings in research. This case report describes different ways that cognitive psychologists can collect (and have collected) confidence ratings in their experiments
