statsTeachR relies on a community of teachers dedicated to creating open-access educational materials for teaching statistics using R. You can think of statsTeachR as the CRAN for statistical education. Anyone can register for the site and upload their modules to the statsTeachR repository.
Module file-structureWe suggest, but do not require that modules follow a structured format, similar to the format for R packages. This enables teachers looking for materials to glance at a module and quickly comprehend the scope of the content and choose, à la carte, what pieces of each module they would like. The following list details the components of each module:
|OVERVIEW||text file||a text file containing meta-data for the module|
|README||text file||a brief description of the module|
|assignments||folder||container for all assignment files|
|labs||folder||container for all lab files|
|quiz||folder||container for all quiz files|
|slides||folder||container for all slide files|
|solutions||folder||container for all solution files (uploaded separately)|
|source||folder||container for the statsTeachR LaTeX preambles and subfolders with source files|
You can download a module folder skeleton that we have designed to ease the process of module preparation. Also, you can visit the statsTeachR GitHub repository to see, fork, download, some of the modules that we have created.
