Please join us Virtually for an our first Skills Workshop of this year 2024!
In recent years, the R programming language has emerged as the industry standard in social science research, owing to its robust statistical analysis tools, powerful data visualization capabilities, and a rich ecosystem of packages. Its open-source nature and emphasis on reproducibility have further propelled its widespread adoption. This workshop titled “R You Ready? An I/O Psychologist’s Guide to R and RStudio" is tailored for both R novices and those seeking a refresher, focusing on the essential 20% of R syntax that facilitates 80% of data analysis tasks. Participants will be introduced to the RStudio environment and fundamental R syntax, followed by hands-on sessions covering data transformation (dplyr), data visualization (ggplot2), statistical analyses (lm, stats), APA-style reporting (markdown, apa, papaja), and text mining (stringr, tidytext). The workshop concludes with collaborative problem-solving sessions to reinforce the concepts learned. The aim is to introduce students and practitioners to the power of R to carry out basic and advanced analyses along with capabilities to visualize and report findings.
