Analysing and Plotting Data: R - OLET1601

Year - 2020

This unit is a gentle on-line OLE introduction into coding using the popular script language R for students who do not receive these skills in junior units of study. Through working through examples in on-line exercises and regular assessment and support hours, the students will develop hands-on skills. In particular the unit will teach analysis of text based data, numerical data and categorical data, constructing plots and developing summaries. Note that the unit only runs in the first 5 weeks of the main Semester 2 teaching period.
