Objective: This study aimed at developing the Persian version of time estimation, time reconstruction, and estimation of delay tests, and their validation among a group of high school students.
Method: Eighty-six high school first-grade students were tested for time estimation, time reconstruction, and estimation of delay using the devised instrument (the Persian version).
Results: In this test of estimation, at the stage of the proband's unawareness about the type of the test, the 8-second range was underestimated as 7.33±0.664 seconds (confidence interval =95%); and was overestimated to 9.65±0.431 seconds after the proband was asked to pay attention to the elapsed time. During the test, 5 seconds was estimated as 6.2, 8 seconds as 7.53 and 11 seconds as 9.73. At 23 seconds, the underestimation was 26%. Almost the same results were obtained in the tests of time reconstruction and estimation of delay.
Conclusion: According to the current study, for all the 3 functions of time estimation, time reconstruction, and estimation of delay, and based on the hyperbolic logics at wider time ranges the validity of the range decreases and the rate of underestimation and under-reconstruction of time increases.
