Target of replication. The goal of the replication effort was to see if there are semantic interference effects in delayed naming such that individuals are slower to respond to semantically related word-picture pairs than semantically unrelated word-picture pairs.
A priori replication criteria. A successful replication would find a statistically significantly slower average reaction time for the semantically related word-picture pairs than semantically unrelated word-picture pairs..
Materials, Data, and Report Study materials can be found in the materials component of this project. Raw data and formatted data for analyses can be found in dataset node. The full report appear in the final report node.
Conclusions. The confirmatory analysis failed to replicate the original experiment. Specifically, Janssen et al. (2008) found that under delayed naming, the semantically related condition yielded slower RTs than the semantically unrelated condition. No such effect was observed in this replication.
