Introduction to R

This course will introduce students to R: a free, open-source, flexible statistical software for manipulating, analysing and visualising data, used in degree-level Psychology and other disciplines. Using the RStudio interface, students will learn how to wrangle data – to combine and extract information of interest, and to clean up data into the format required for further analysis. Students will learn how to perform descriptive analyses to extract summary information and to visualise data in academic-standard plots. The course aims to provide students with the starter skills and confidence to continue developing their R skills independently after the conclusion of the course.
