Dr. Larry Hedges: A symposium on the replicability of experimental research
March 16, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
Dr. Larry Hedges, Institute for Policy Research, Northwestern University
Replication is a fundamental aspect of the scientific method and is central to the practice of science. Yet recent empirical research has called into question the replicability of experimental research which undermines the credibility of science and the evidence science provides. There has been little research on the methodology of replication itself, including the design of replication studies and appropriate statistical analyses to determine whether a set of studies replicate one another. This talk will draw on a meta-analytic perspective to formalize ideas about the definition of replication and the analysis of replication studies.
