Skills learned from R assignments will be applied in a final project done in Rstudio. Students use an existing data set in order to write annotated code to 1) import the data set into R, 2) clean the data, 3) use a graph to visualize variables of interest, 4) check for assumptions for a statistical test, and 5) perform a statistical analysis of their variables of interest.
