About this course

R has become a popular programming language for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio and the Shiny web application framework.

The primary goal of this workshop is to familiarise you with basic statistical concepts in R from reading in and manipulating data, checking assumptions, statistical tests and visualisations. This is not an advanced statistics course, but is instead designed to gently introduce you to statistical comparisons and hypothesis testing in R.


Learning Outcomes

  • Read in and manipulate data
  • Check assumptions of t tests
  • Perform one-sample t tests
  • Perform two-sample t tests:
    • Independent-samples
    • Paired-samples
  • Perform nonparametric t tests:
    • One-sample Wilcoxon Signed Rank test
    • Independent-samples Mann-Whitney U test
