PSY4802: Using R to Create Reproducible Research in Psychology

3 Credits

Conducting psychological research involves collecting data, but what happens next? Completing research projects involves more than just analyzing data. In this course, we will learn how to incorporate Open Science tools like R programming into the research process in order to generate reproducible and transparent analyses. Specifically, students will learn how to clean data, and create R Markdown files that contain statistics, data visualizations, and interpretations. Finally, students will learn how to share their code and data via GitHub and the Open Science Framework as well as how to use and evaluate each other’s code. A large component of this course will involve applying R skills and Open Science knowledge in a group secondary data analysis project that will culminate in a brief presentation. Completion of PSY 3801 is strongly recommended, but not required.
