The ability to replicate studies is crucial to establishing trustworthy scientific results. The Open Science Collaboration (OSC), however, suggests the replication rates of studies from high impact psychology journals are low, and this is consistent with other domains of science. Researchers seek to address this issue.
University of Maryland College of Education’s Dr. Peter Steiner, associate professor in the department of Human Development & Quantitative Methodology, and University of Virginia's Dr. Vivian Wong, principal investigator, are sharing their research in a new website for the Collaboratory Replication Lab, www.edreplication.org.
The lab combines methodological expertise with substantive expertise, partnering with education researchers in teacher preparation, special education, and reading, to design, implement, and analyze high quality replication studies.
The lab is made up of faculty, staff, and students at the two universities, and the website serves as a hub of resources for systematic replication studies. It includes links to working papers, papers, and the lab's partner projects.
