I worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis from 8-10:30 this morning to finish my hours for the summer II 495 credit. I have my final 2 or 3 questions that I need to go over with Wan, and I added a few PDFs to the PDF folder that were missing. A couple articles added at the very beginning of the Meta-Analysis are just commentary, so I would like to know if I need to reject these. Also there is a PDF for an article that I can’t find, so I can’t add this to the PDF folder. Other than these questions, the Replication Meta-Analysis should be ready for complex coding in the fall.

I worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis on Friday from 12-4pm and today from 10-12pm after I took a final for my 10 week class. There was not much left to do so over those six hours I have been going over the PDFs, the list, and the excel sheet to make sure that everything was correct and ready when we move on to complex coding in the fall. There is only one article left that I need to finish tomorrow for my final 2.5 hours in the lab for summer II.

I worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis from 10-1 today and went back through the articles that were conceptual and partial replications. I highlighted in the articles where it stated the replication was partial and conceptual and saved them in a folder I made that is named “PDFs of Partial/Conceptual Replications with Highlighting”. I need to go over one more article tomorrow and then we should be ready to proceed with the Replication Meta-Analysis. Last week I went over some questions with Wan for a couple hours and we decided that we had two questions to bring to Dr. Lench. We wanted to know if we should include a multi-lab study and whether Sam and I needed to go back over each other’s work. She said to put the multi-lab study aside for right now and we can come back to it. Dr. Lench also said that Sam and I don’t need to go back over each other’s work in this initial process of excluding articles that don’t fit the criteria.

Today I worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis from 10-12 and then from 3:30-4:30. I finished going through the list of articles that Sam had put together on the google doc and have 4 or 5 questions left before I can finish the list completely. I put together a word document that includes questions I have about some articles on the list and it also includes a list of updates for what I’ve done on this Meta-Analysis. I messaged Wan to see if he and I could get some initial questions out of the way, and will e-mail Dr. Lench tomorrow to set up a time to ask her questions about the project.

I worked on Replication Meta-Analysis from 9-12 today. I was supposed to work for 3 hours on Friday, but my mom had car trouble and so she had to use my car. I added a few more replication articles to the excel sheet. I also realized that some of the articles we had flagged as corrections were in the list twice, but one was the actual article and one was only the correction and both were rejected as only corrections. So I went back and rejected only the corrections and began coding the actual articles. I also added one folder to the PDFs 2005-2015 that is labeled as Found Looking for 2016-2017, because it was a replication article I found through a correction but not from 2016-2017. So to keep the articles separate I added another folder in the PDFs 2005-2015 folder and added the PDF there. I also began highlighting articles that I have questions on and will probably need to ultimately bring to Dr. Lench in purple on the word document with the articles that Sam pulled in Summer Session I.

Today I was in lab from 10-2 working on Replication Meta-Analysis. I worked on the articles that Sam and I had flagged with questions and also asked Wan about some questions I had. I asked Wan about articles that were only corrections and articles that were technically not replications but only about replications. He said to include the original articles that the corrections were about and make a note about this. Wan also said to include the articles about replications, because these could be used as references later on. Overall, I have 24 articles left in this Replication Meta-Analysis to look over before this project is complete.

Today I was in lab from 10-12 working on the Replication Meta-Analysis. I finished going through the list that Sam put together of articles that looked like they fit our criteria for replications. There are about 16 or 17 articles that Sam and I flagged where we were unsure of certain information or whether they were even replications. I will go back through these articles over the next few days and find out the missing information or make a list for Dr. Lench and Wan so we can finish this phase of Replication Meta-Analysis.

Today I was in lab from 10-2, and I worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis. I asked Wan a couple of questions about articles that have partial replications and about articles that were dissertations. Wan told me that partial replications can still be included and to simply make a not that it is not a direct replication. He also said that dissertations are included if they are replications. I only have 6 articles left to look at from the list Sam gave me, and then I will go back through the list and attempt to answer some of my questions I had before.

Today I was here from 10-12, and worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis. I got through about another 10 articles from the list that Sam put together, so I am now on article 179 of 217. I had questions on a few of the articles that had either partial or conceptual replications, and I am not sure whether to include them or not.

Today is the first day for my summer session II 491 class. The summer session started last Tuesday but I did not come to lab, so I will be making up those seven hours throughout the semester. Last Friday I met with Sam who worked on the Replication Meta-Analysis during the first summer session. She updated me on what she has done for the meta-analysis, which is make a list for all the studies she thought could be a replication using the article search instructions in the Google Drive. She also informed me that we are only coding for 2016-2017 and we are not doing the complex coding for right now. I completed a few articles today while I was here from 10-1, but I also skipped some that I had questions on. One article was a replication but did not involve participants and the other I believe was a replication but I could not find the exact study it was replicating. I also went over my schedule for next semester with Zari.
