Socially Desirable Responding: Does it Affect Reported Progress in Gamification?


Viktor Shoemaker

I am a sophomore at Valencia College who plans to transfer to the University of Central Florida in the fall to study psychology. I hope to one day attend graduate school to become a Clinical Psychologist. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and, quite relevant to my research topic, playing a wide range of video games.


ABSTRACT:  This project explores the connection between commonly accepted measures of socially desirable responding, reported progress in a habit-tracking app, and lies about one’s own progress in a purely online setting.
