Resources and Links

This page is designed to provide supplemental resources for statistics courses taught in the Psychology Department. Links to web resources include tutorials, online textbooks, and glossaries. Several links to publisher's web sites for some of the textbooks used in psychology statistics classes are also provided.

Applets called Shiny applets facilitate learning several concepts and are found below. We also provide a set of instructional modules that teach some basic skills with spreadsheets that can facilitate the computations required for learning several descriptive statistics as well as some inferential tests.A set of Java Applets can also be found. These applets provide an interactive way to master several core concepts in statistical analysis.

R/Shiny Applications for Learning Statistical Concepts

Note that these applications are currently being edited, developed and expanded. Check back often.
(Shiny apps developed by B. Dudek, Univeristy at Albany using the Shiny package from RStudio and R)

These shiny apps do not work well with Internet Explorer at the moment. Use Firefox, Chrome, Safari.
