Over the past decade a number of applied research fields have been unable to replicate important findings that were once thought to be robust. Commonly referred to as the replication crisis, this state of affairs has alerted researchers to systemic problems in current practice and ignited a credibility revolution that aims to increase the trustworthiness of scientific findings through equally systemic reforms (Vazire, 2018). The scope of these efforts and the speed with which they have already transformed multiple aspects of research culture and infrastructure in some disciplines is noteworthy. Along with the additional challenges posed by evolving technologies and big data, there is both need and opportunity for the education research community to reflect on its own practices and identify areas for improvement. To that end, this article provides a brief review of some of the core issues identified in the replication crisis, followed by a discussion of current reform efforts and their potential application in education research.
