Customer Satisfaction and Overall Rating: the Influence of Judgment Certainty

The objective of this research is to understand how rating magnitude and rating uncertainty and its interplay with satisfaction affects stated customer experience. We utilize the Judgment Uncertainty and Magnitude Parameters (JUMP) model (Chandrashekaran, McNeilly, Russ, & Marinova, 2000) to empirically examine consumer judgments of their overall experience.
