1. Absolute Beginners’ Guide to R

A series of worksheets on using R for data analysis in psychology. No previous knowledge of R, or of psycholopgy, is assumed.

2. Putting R to work

These are mainly further practice in the skills learned in Absolute Beginners’. Where the exercises contain completely new skills, these are shown in bold. Where the excercises extend a skill you’ve already been taught, these are shown in italics. The exercises become somewhat more difficult as you go down the list.

If you are a current undergraduate student at Plymouth University, you should complete the accompanying Psych:EL (Psychology: Experiential Learning) activity first, in order to generate your own set of data. If you’re not, you can download sample data files here.

3. A Very Brief Guide to R

The Absolute Beginners’ Guide to R and Putting R to Work provide, between them, about 20 hours of introductory material. For those in a hurry, the Very Brief Guide to R covers the most critical material from those two courses in about four hours.

4. Research Methods in Practice

The following materials are currently being developed, so on clicking these links, you may find just notes, or incomplete worksheets.
