Join us for the return of the popular workshop, "Transitioning from SPSS to R, " led by Daryn Cushnie-Sparrow. The first time Daryn gave this talk back in summer 2017, she walked us through considerations for using R as an SPSS user from the perspective of a relatively new R user (as she was at the time!). She has since updated the presentation and will be leading it anew on Thursday, November 29th at 6pm. The workshop will involve learning how to think about your data in R as an SPSS user and to use commands for running statistical tests in both programs. She will also walk us through how to manipulate your data in R and output it in a ready-for-SPSS format for those who don't like data wrangling in Excel, but work with supervisors or colleagues who prefer to work with SPSS. Daryn is also a tidyverse fiend, and has a way of sprinkling helpful nuggets of useful tidy syntax throughout. Bottom line: there will be lots to learn, whether you're an SPSS user or not!
