the present study tests rakover and cahlon’s (2013) face- checking model, which grades 7 regular and scrambled faces on a scale of similarity to an upright regular face, by predicting the results of 2 experiments in upright and inverted orientations: experiment 1, which uses the interest choice task (to choose from a pair of faces the one most interesting), and experiment 2, which uses the old/new recognition task. the main results of these 2 experiments show that in comparison to rakover and cahlon’s (2013) findings, the face- checking model preserves its ability to predict satisfactorily the order of the 7 faces in the 2 experiments especially in the upright orientation; however, the model’s success in making accurate point predictions is reduced significantly in both the upright and the inverted orientations.
