14th June, 2017: This one day course aims to familiarise participants with the R interface and the R language, in order to enable them to conduct statistical analysis; from reading in their datasets to performing mainstream statistical tests.
This course is aimed at researchers who want to learn how to use the statistical software R to conduct statistical analysis. Delegates will be expected to have a basic understanding of common statistical tests and concepts as these will not be taught during this workshop (taught on our 5 day course – Introduction to research methods and statistics). The topics covered using R will include:
- Introduction to the R platform and interface
- Introduction to basic scripting commands
- Input of data sets
- Summary measures
- Graphical displays
- Statistical tests (t-test)
- Add-ons and packages in R
- Help in R
The course will take place in a cluster room, with access to a computer and R. Delegates are welcome to bring their own laptops if preferred (access to the UCL Guest network will also be provided), but everyone wishing to bring their own computer should ensure R is installed before attending (installation guidelines will be made available two weeks before the course).
All CASC courses take place in central London, in or close to the Institute of Child Health. Specific details of the course venue will be supplied after registration.
