Replication Is the Bedrock of Science – Should It Be Predicted?

I think the claims to measurement in our discipline are on shaky ground to put in politely. As such, I often think that we should be focussed more on the evaluation of usefulness rather than infinitesimally small gains in measurement accuracy.

Gamification in Personnel Selection and the Need for Real-world Evaluation

The International Journal of Selection and Assessment recently included a feature article on the gamification of assessment. While the research methodology in the article was sound, I could not help but think that the article in many ways symbolised what is wrong with much of the assessment literature that emphasises psychometric properties as opposed to practical utility.

Lifetime Goals and Long-Term Lessons

Over the past six years, I have had more injuries, than at any other time in my life. I have also had to cross train harder, simply to be able to make it to training each week. The irony is that I have loved every minute of my judo journey and would not change one aspect of the past six years.

While the failure to replicate findings from the psychological literature has been a common critique of psychology in the recent press, one area of psychology which does appear to replicate is that of trait-based prediction, a finding that is especially relevant for I/O Psychology.

Plagiarism in the 21st Century

Turnitin, the plagiarism detector that most Universities has been sold. Having used Turnitin for years now, I have found the software to be improving continually, and the software regularly picks most aspects of plagiarism relatively fast.

The Gendered Brain and the Seven Deadly Sins of Psychological Science

A new book has recently hit the market that I believe should be mandatory reading for most scientists in the field. The book is called - 'The Gendered Brain: The New Neuroscience That Shatters The Myth Of The Female Brain' - and the key premise of the book is that men and women’s brains are simply not that different.While the key issue discussed is certainly important, I believe there are far larger issues for the discipline that are highlighted in this book.
