SamenvattingThis study investigates how question order in terms of difficulty may influence not only final results, but also the perceptions individuals have about their performance in testing situations. The results of an economic experiment confirm the presence of a
question order bias affecting impressions of ability and difficulty: subjects that have easy items at the beginning expected a lower overall performance and perceived the test as more difficult. Question order also affects future choices: participants starting with easier questions choose easier tasks more often compared to those that had hard questions at the beginning. The impact of feedback in the form of intermediate scores was also examined
but no significant differences were found between the feedback conditions.
