Primary Outcomes

Primary Outcomes (end points)
Endogenous time allocation decisions, see attached PDF for further details
Primary Outcomes (explanation)
In our experiment, subjects need to decide how much time to allocate to solving variants of our task, given a specific cost of time. We elicit this decisions for two types of time allocation decisions: prospectively planned decision time as well as actually used decision time to identify the solution in our task.
