Welcome to DATA606! My name is Dr. Jason Bryer and I will be your instructor for this semester. In addition to teaching this course, I am an Executive Director at Excelsior College where I am currently working on a Department of Education grant to develop a Diagnostic Assessment and Achievement of College Skills (see www.DAACS.net for more information). Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, September 5th. Couple of important notes as you get started:
To get started with the labs, you will need to install R and other supporting applications. Links to download all the software is on the Software page at http://data606.net/software which is available on the Misc menu. Once you are in RStudio, you will need to install a number of R packages using the following two commands: install.packages(c('openintro','OIdata','devtools','ggplot2','psych','reshape2', 'knitr','markdown','shiny')) devtools::install_github("jbryer/DATA606") Note that this course used to be listed as IS 606, hence the different package name.
