The most interesting this was this, IMO

Prof. Stark runs a course on the theory and application of statistical
models. In his course, groups of students replicate and critique the
statistical analyses of published research articles using the article=E2=80=
=99s
publicly available raw data. Obviously, for this course to work, Prof.
Stark needs rigorous research articles and the raw data used in the
article. In this sense, Pitt and Hill=E2=80=99s article on ScienceOpen was =
an
ideal candidate..

The groups of students started their critical replication of the Hill
and Pitt article in the Fall semester of 2016 and finished right before
the new year. By getting students to actively engage with research,
they gain the confidence and expertise to critically analyse published
research.
