The study examined the effect of range of a confidence scale on consumer knowledge calibration, specifically whether a restricted range scale (25%–100%) leads to difference in calibration compared to a full range scale (0%–100%), for multiple-choice questions. A quasi-experimental study using student participants (N = 434) was employed. Data were collected from two samples; in the first sample (N = 167) a full range confidence scale was used, and in the second sample (N = 267) a restricted range scale was used. No differences were found between the two scales on knowledge calibration. Results from studies of knowledge calibration employing restricted range and full range confidence scales are thus comparable.
