Nov 15, 2019 EPUB Document Toward Greater Reproducibility of Undergraduate Behavioral Science Research--EPub - SPUR
Undergraduate behavioral science research projects that rely on small convenience samples of par- ticipants, overuse hypothesis testing for drawing meaning from data, and engage in opaque statistical computing are vulnerable to producing nonreproducible findings. These vulnerabilities are reviewed, and practical recommendations for improving the credibility and reproducibility of undergraduate behavioral science research are offered.
