    Building on a basic knowledge of R and introductory statistics, this workshop will walk you through the R functionality you'll need to use when conducting hypothesis tests on continuous variables. We will practice reading in data, conducting t-tests (both parametric and non-parametric), tests of equal variance, ANOVA, computing confidence intervals, and interpreting associated outputs. It is recommended that you have used R before (even if you consider yourself a beginner) and it is also recommended that you have taken an introductory statistics course.
