Statistics Resources

All statistical analyses presented on this website are completed using the R statistical software environment and R Studio IDE. To learn R, I used the following embarrassingly remedial online courses:

Interactive visualizations are sloppily put together using Plot.ly or D3.js. I have no idea how to use these tools, so credit really has to go to R-bloggers and Stack Overflow.

Data gathering is generally completed using Qualtrics. Sometimes Google Forms. I especially appreciate the Open Psychometrics Project for being a thing that exists, creating a platform and sharing data.

And I know this isn’t strictly speaking about statistics but I’m not making a whole subcategory for citation management, which I do using Zotero.
