Hi All, I am looking at some data regarding correlation between control measures and (perceived)errors at(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a given position. The level of error seems , intuitively, suspiciously low. I suspect the low perceived error may

be at least partially explained by the Dunning Kruger effect:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning–Kruger_effect

Does anyone know of anyway of factoring the effects of Dunning-Kruger to come up with a more realistic

expectation of error given control? We have a measure of Control from 0-5, same scale for error(both scales are linear; control goes from high to low, error goes from low to high: control near 5 is high, error near 5 is low) . Say a an input of control is 1 , a low measure, and the perceived error at that level is 4. Can I make a more accurate estimate of error by factoring out effects of Dunning-Kruger?

Thanks.
