Abstract: Two key assumptions of psychology studies are that (1) participants understand what researchers are asking them to do and (2) participants provide sincere responses when completing questionnaires and other tasks. While data-quality checks are being used increasingly often to verify these assumptions, there are still numerous psychology studies being conducted with inadequate data-quality checks—or no data-quality checks at all. In this talk I present research showing that low-quality data from psychology studies can have effects that are considerably more pernicious than you might think. As a consequence, I argue that we need to reconsider how we evaluate the existing psychological research literature.
