Making the switch: A beginner’s guide to R for those familiar with other packages

My goal is to take everyone through the process of importing a dataset, visualizing it, running a simple analysis (e.g. linear regression/ANOVA), examining the results and getting a publication quality report out at the end.


Before the workshop, you need to install some software on your computer.

You should also install packages lme4, lsmeans, lmerTest. I will also use package pander to make nice tables, but this is optional.
