In the present commentary, the authors reiterate and specify their argument for the place of the appraisal process in response shift research and suggest four key areas of research and development going forward. These areas cover the questions: (i) which psychological constructs are necessary to adequately describe appraisal processes; (ii) what is the evidential status of the expected scores that we derive from response shift analyses; (iii) how do group-level and individual level conceptualizations and analyses relate to each other; and finally, (iv) whether we should start planning trials in a way that corrects for response shifts. …
