Dear students,

due to the current corona situation, the lecture will move to an online-only format from next week. So please do not come to the lecture hall next Tuesday morning! The zoom link for the online lecture will remain the same.

Hopefully, we can move back onto campus later in the semester, in case the situation improves.

Best regards,

Let's try zoom next week

Hi all,

as you noticed, there were at least two technical problems this week.

One was that there was a significant time lag between me changing slides and slides changing on TEAMS. This can happen when there are too many people in a TEAMS meeting of when the internet connection isn't sufficiently fast. We will try to fix this by moving to zoom next week. I have updated the TEAMS meeting such that it now contains the zoom link as the location, so you should be able to join the zoom meeting still via your TEAMS calendar.
Also, I post the link here, in case that is more convenient for you: https://zoom.us/j/3679328022?pwd=TkYzSk5nNDdudCtPNnExUHVXTlEzQT09

The other problem was that the camera of the room was not connected to the room computer (or at least, it did not react). This problem would affect both TEAMS and zoom, and I hope that it will get fixed until next week.

Finally, I will try to use the blackboard less and instead draw on the slides; this way, the remote people should be able to see equally well.

Best regards,

Vera Demberg

## UPDATE##

There are still a couple of groups with only two members, please already start working on the assignment, we will see what we can do about it.

## UPDATE##

We already merged some of the groups, respecting as much as possible the turorial group and/or same study subject. If you would like to be assigned to a group, please create one for yourself, this way it's easier to get an overview of who is still looking for one.

 

Dear students,

please make sure that you form your groups until tomorrow noon.

For groups with less than 3 students, we will merge them tomorrow afternoon to give you a chance to work together on sheet 0.

Please also note that tutorials are now fixed! We have a lot of students this year and sadly cannot accomodate all of your individual preferences.

You will find your online tutorial on teams. We will also create a channel for each tutorial there, where you can ask questions to your tutor (they are not yet in place). If you did not yet join the course on teams, please do that as soon as possible!

Thanks and good luck with your first assignment!

Our sheets will be available on this site each week after the lecture. They are always due on Sunday night.

To be admitted to the exam:
- DataCamp: you need to do all DataCamp exercises. 
- Our sheets (PDFs or R files): you can miss one complete sheet without excuses. If you are ill and have to miss 2 or more sheets, please contact us.
A whole sheet is counted as completed only if you made a good attempt to solve it or if you at least formulated why you couldn't solve it and what you have tried.

We are following two books:

  • Learning statistics with R: A tutorial for psychology students and other beginners by Daniel Navarro
  • Statistical Methods for Psychology by David C. Howell

This class is supported by DataCamp, which allows students to take online classes with automatic code correction for learning R, Python and SQL.
The courses combine short expert videos and hands-on-the-keyboard exercises.
