This study compares decision making strategies in a deferred decision making task among children and adolescents ages 8-17. The task is to determine how many recommendations to open before making a decision to buy something. The first goal is to provide a validation test for the Stopping Rule Selection Theory (SRS), which hypothesizes that a decision maker is able to use multiple stopping rules at the same time, and provides a computational model for the selection of rules. The second goal is to observe the dynamics of stopping rule selection changes across age groups.
