  • The core features of a data analysis workflow
  • Common errors and how to fix them

And you’ll be able to use:

  • Basic functions in the tidyverse to process raw data for typical data analysis questions
  • Logical expressions and indexing to ask specific questions of data
  • Functions to conduct common statistical tests


  • Basic knowledge of the scientific process (e.g., What research question does your address and where does it come from?)
  • An RStudio account (You’ll be provided RStudio Cloud projects during the course)
  • An installation of R and RStudio on your personal computer
  • A dataset to analyze
