Replication in computing education research

Alireza Ahadi, Arto Hellas, Petri Ihantola, Ari Korhonen, Andrew Petersen
2016 Proceedings of the 16th Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research - Koli Calling '16  
This work reports on the value the computing education research community associates with studies that aim to replicate, reproduce or repeat earlier research.  ...  In particular, researchers agree that original works -novel works that report new phenomena -have more impact and are more prestigious.  ...  In this paper as well as in the survey, we have argued that as a community, we use the terms replicate, reproduce and repeat interchangeably.  ...

RF in the Jungle: Effect of Environment Assumptions on Wireless Experiment Repeatability

R. Burchfield, E. Nourbakhsh, J. Dix, K. Sahu, S. Venkatesan, R. Prakash
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Communications  
In this paper we examine and test several common explicit and implicit assumptions that researchers tend to make about the wireless environment.  ...  We find that because the environment is always in flux, it is almost impossible to reproduce the results of an experiment.  ...  Hence, there is a critical need to develop rigorous experimental methodology so that different wireless networking research groups can independently reproduce results of experiments and validate various  ...

Conditioning of Pleurobranchaea

R. Lee
1976 Science  
It was, in fact, for the purpose of objectivity that we specifically selected strong, identifiable, and reproducible behaviors, measured them quantitatively under blind conditions, and repeated the measurements  ...  In our more recent experiments we employed the alternating CS/US control group, and, therefore, Lee's questioning as to whether we have "rigorously demonstrated a behavioral change classifiable as 'conditioning  ...
