Organizers: William Revelle & Marco Perugini

R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation, and graphical display that is particularly useful for psychological and personality scientists. The aim of this summer school is to make participants familiar with the R package as it can be used for substantive research questions in personality psychology. The summer school will start from the basic notions of R, including simple standard descriptive statistics, graphical approaches, and basic statistical techniques, and then move to more advanced issues, including classic and IRT psychometric approaches, multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, social interactions model, and data simulation. Participants will be encouraged to bring their own data for analyses under supervision of faculty members.

Teaching faculty includes:
William Revelle, Northwestern University, USA
Yves Roseel, Ghent University, Belgium
Felix Schönbrodt, University of Munich, Germany
Ryne A. Sherman, Florida Atlantic University, USA
Giulio Costantini, Milano-Bicocca, Italy
