How to Use R for Statistics
The Faculty Development Center, in partnership with ORDA, was pleased to host a 2-part workshop series on using R for statistical analysis. These workshops are ideal for those who are interested in or curious about learning to use R. We encourage you to check out the recording from session 1 of the series!
Introduction to R: Part I
R is a very popular and open source statistical software for statistical computing, graphing and analysis. RStudio, an integrated development environment (IDE), makes working with R convenient and easy. Within RStudio, an R markdown is a file formatting software for producing html, word and pdf documents of completed analyses. This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to R. We start with the installation of R and RStudio software, and then work through a number of examples demonstrating how data can be entered into R, directly or from external resources, and perform basic statistical analysis via descriptive statistics and graphics.
