Description: In this workshop, we will define questionable measurement practices and explain how they make it impossible to evaluate a wide range of potential validity threats to a study’s conclusions. We will demonstrate that psychology is plagued by a Measurement Schmeasurement attitude by showing that QMPs are common, offer a stunning source of researcher degrees of freedom, pose a serious threat to cumulative psychological science, but are largely ignored. We will go through examples and a set of questions that researchers and consumers of scientific research can consider to identify and avoid QMPs. We will discuss how measurement transparency promotes rigorous research, allows for thorough evaluations of a study’s inferences, and is necessary for meaningful replication studies. The workshop is based on our preprint: Rationale for the workshop: Measurement resource list for folks who want to learn more about measurement:
