1. Overview of this CE program (top)

This home study course entails the independent study of What meta-analyses reveal about the replicability of psychological research (Stanley, Carter, & Doucouliagos, 2018), followed by the completion of a multiple-choice test on-line. Participants who receive a passing grade of 75% or higher on the test will receive 2 CE credits. Failing participants may retake the test as often as they wish at no additional charge, and receive CE credit when they do pass.
