Introducing Statistics with intRo

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

intRo is a modern web-based application for performing basic data analysis and statistical routines as well as an accompanying R package. Leveraging the power of R and Shiny, intRo implements common statistical functions in a powerful and extensible modular structure, while remaining simple enough for the novice statistician. This simplicity lends itself to a natural presentation in an introductory statistics course as a substitute for other commonly used statistical software packages, such as Excel and JMP. intRo is currently deployed at the URL http://www.intro-stats.com. In this talk, we describe the underlying design and functionality of intRo, including its extensible modular structure, illustrate its use with a live demo, and discuss future improvements that will enable a wider adoption of intRo in introductory statistics courses.
