Abstract: There is a growing recognition for a need to replicate research studies in the field of education. Replication can lend credibility as well as support for decision-making that is based on sound research. Many policy decisions regarding educational technology interventions are made based on research studies. Assuring the studies are reliable and generalizable beyond the original study is an important component to support the decision-making process. Recommendations for promoting the use of replication studies in educational technology are discussed in this paper and will further be discussed and debated during the proposed panel.
