Content
This one day introductory course will show you how you can make use of the R statistical programming environment in your own research. R is a powerful tool that will enable you to analyze or simulate data, and make beautiful (print quality) graphics that SPSS sometimes lacks. The aim of this course is to get some initial hands-on experience with R. It is especially aimed at those who have no experience with R at all and want to spend a day to find out whether R is something for them or not.

We will discuss:

• The R programming language,
• Handling data (e.g., merging and transforming data frames),
• Performing basic analysis (e.g., t-tests, regression, anova),
• Visualizing data for data exploration as well as to create publication quality graphics,
• Using R to document your research and write papers with maximum transparency.

All students are encouraged to install the program before the course (see www.r-project.org), but no prior knowledge of R or other programming languages is required to sign up. We do expect you to have enough knowledge of statistics that we can fully focus on R instead of the statistics themselves.
