Hi, This is an interesting topic and you have made a good start. There are some really good starter references for this topic. Another good reference I found is Guttentag, R., & Ferrell, J. (2008). Children’s understanding of anticipatory regret and disappointment. Cognition and Emotion, 22(5), 815–832. I can see the summary and conclusion are still to be commenced. Good luck with bringing it all together. There are a lot of good resources here. --Amyleehart (discusscontribs) 22:56, 16 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hi there! Good work so far in developing your chapter. I just have a few suggestions: I think it would be beneficial if you included more interactive activities such as; quizzes, case studies or "did you know" boxes. Perhaps it would also be useful to develop some focus questions I found this article which relates to your topic and may be useful to get you started: The article is called Locked Into Gambling: Anticipatory Regret as a Motivator for Playing the National Lottery Good luck with the rest of your book chapter! Looking forward to reading it Thank you --U3202023 (discusscontribs) 07:13, 5 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello, This is a really interesting topic for a book chapter and I almost chose this one myself. I found this interesting article called 'Cassandra’s Regret: The Psychology of Not Wanting to Know' DOI: 10.1037/REV0000055. I think it could be used as a fun mythical case study or just as an article that contains some key information that you could include. Best of luck!--U3217975 (discusscontribs) 08:31, 10 October 2021 (UTC)Reply

APA style and capitalisation

[edit source]
  1. Overall, this is an excellent chapter that successfully uses psychological theory and research to help address a practical, real-world phenomenon or problem.
  2. For additional feedback, see the following comments and these copyedits.
  1. Well developed Overview.
  2. Clearly explains the problem or phenomenon.
  3. Clear focus question(s).
  4. Engages reader interest by introducing a case study and/or example and/or using an image.

  2. The chapter doesn't wander off into discussion of irrelevant theory.
  1. Appropriate depth is provided about the selected theory(ies).
  2. Key citations are well used.
  3. Tables and/or lists are used effectively to help clearly convey key theoretical information.
  4. Some useful examples are provided to illustrate theoretical concepts.
  5. More examples could be useful to illustrate key concepts.
  1. Relevant research is well reviewed.
  1. Good critical thinking about research is evident.
  2. Critical thinking about research could be further evidenced by:
    1. describing the methodology (e.g., sample, measures) in important studies
    2. discussing the direction of relationships
    3. considering the strength of relationships
    4. acknowledging limitations
    5. suggesting specific directions for future research
  3. Claims are referenced.
  1. Discussion of theory and research is well integrated.
  1. Key points are well summarised.
  2. Address the focus questions.
  3. Add practical, take-home message(s).
  1. Written expression
    1. Overall, the quality of written expression is excellent.
    2. Avoid directional referencing (e.g., "As previously mentioned"). Instead:
      1. it is, most often, not needed at all, or
      2. use section linking.
    3. Avoid starting sentences with a citation unless the author is particularly pertinent. Instead, it is more interesting for the the content/key point to be communicated, with the citation included along the way or, more typically, in parentheses at the end of the sentence.
    4. Use 3rd person perspective (e.g., "it") rather than 1st (e.g., "we") or 2nd person (e.g., "you") perspective[1] in the main text, although 1st or 2nd person perspective can work well for case studies or feature boxes.
    5. Reduce use of weasel words (e.g., "said to be") which bulk out the text, but don't enhance meaning.
  2. Layout
    1. Sections which branch into sub-sections should include an introductory paragraph before branching into the sub-sections.
  3. Grammar
    1. Check and make correct use of commas.
    2. Use serial commas[2] — they are part of APA style and are generally recommended by grammaticists. Here's an explanatory video (1 min).
  4. APA style
    1. Numbers under 10 should be written in words (e.g., five); numbers 10 and over should be written in numerals (e.g., 10).
    2. Figures
      1. Figures are very well captioned.
      2. Refer to each Figure using APA style (e.g., check and correct capitalisation).
      3. Figure captions should use this format: Figure X. Descriptive caption in sentence casing. See example.
      4. Each Figure is referred to at least once within the main text.
    3. Citations use correct APA style.
    4. References are not in full APA style. For example:
      1. Check and correct use of capitalisation[3]
  1. Overall, the use of learning features is good.
  2. Very good use of embedded in-text interwiki links to Wikipedia articles. # One use of embedded in-text links to related book chapters. Embedding in-text links to related book chapters helps to integrate this chapter into the broader book project.
  3. Very good use of image(s).
  4. No use of table(s).
  5. Excellent use of feature box(es).
  6. Good use of quiz(zes).
  7. Good use of case studies or examples.
  8. Excellent use of interwiki links in the "See also" section.
  9. Excellent use of external links in the "External links" section.
  1. ~5 logged, useful moderate to major social contributions with direct links to evidence.
