>>Details 04.29.2013eventLecture by Dr. Gregory Francis on replication in psychology Title: The psychology of replication and replication in psychology Abstract: Many scientists believe that repeated successful replications of an experiment are the best way to demonstrate the validity of an empirical finding. Although this belief is often described as a foundation of an empirical science, it is wrong. When success is measured by rejecting a null hypothesis, the replication rate should follow the rules of probability. If the frequency of rejecting the null hypothesis is inconsistent with the power of reported experiments, then there is some type of publication bias. Regrettably, when there is publication bias, the set of experiments should be considered non-scientific. I will demonstrate how to test for too much successful replication and will provide examples of how publication bias contaminates important studies in experimental psychology. If time permits, I will discuss a different way of scientific practice that avoids publication bias by ignoring replication. Where: Psychology 230 When: Monday, April 29 at 5:30 pm

I approach self-regulation from a relational developmental systems perspective, and I work to understand how individuals align domain-specific self-regulation skills with facets of their unique contexts. I am also a quantitative methodologist; I not only apply advanced multivariate methods to my own research, but I also treat quantitative methodology as a research domain. My quantitative research focuses on latent variable models, multilevel models, and issues related to scale creation and validation. In this talk I summarize my research on self-regulation and highlight ways I have integrated this research with my methodological interests. I then briefly discuss future directions for my research.
