Leigh Ann Vaughn, Associate Professor of Psychology, is a co-author on "Many Labs 3: Evaluating participant pool quality across the academic semester via replication," which was published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology on September 17, 2016.
This publication is the culmination of work by researchers at 22 institutions in the U.S. and Canada, which was headed by Charles Ebersole of the University of Virginia. The article acknowledges the following Ithaca College alumnae for contributing to the data collection in fall 2014: Emma Hayden Arnaut (2015), Patricia Herrmann (2015), Christine Hill (2015), Kanako Kambe (2016), Abigail Kane-Gerard (2016), and Hayley Paquette (2015). These students were psychology majors in Professor Vaughn's Social Judgment Research Team.
Attendees of this conference learned about new research on how the scientific process can be improved. Additionally, we worked for three days to develop projects that could have immediate and concrete results.
This year, thirteen students and one faculty member have been honored by membership in the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society. The Sigma Xi motto is: "Companions in Zealous Research", a phrase that describes these scientists well. Founded in 1886, Sigma Xi is the international honor society of scientists and engineers who are elected to membership because of their research achievements or potential. The honorees were introduced by their research mentors at the banquet of the Paulen A Smith Chapter, which is celebrating its Fifty-first year at Ithaca College.
