Primary Instructor:

This class will offer an introduction to using the R computer language for the analysis of behavioral data. This is not a statistics class, although some relevant statistical concepts will be covered. Instead, students will learn to work with, summarize, and draw inferences from the types of data behavioral researchers will encounter in the wild. Topics covered will include data manipulation, including data cleaning and reshaping; working with dates and times; combining data from multiple sources; data storage; developing databases and packages in R; Social Network Analysis, and, depending on student interest, advanced network-based regression techniques. During class, students will be provided with R code to execute example tasks, and assignments will involve modifying and extending this code to solve similar problems. Previous familiarity with R is strongly encouraged, but if you are considering taking the class I encourage you to contact me with any questions

Course Requirements:

Previous familiarity with R is strongly encouraged.
