Teaching reproducibility for stats beginners – give me seven ideas!

ReplicationI’m teaching reproducibility as part of a lecture for statistics beginners in the social sciences. I reserved seven slides for that and I have 15 minutes. What would you include?

I’m thinking of these topics, and I would really need input on how to rank these, or additions on what I missed. Please comment below or on twitter (@polscireplicate).

  • Definition of reproducibility and research transparency
  • Recent scandals in the social sciences
  • How to save your project files in a transparent way (structuring your files)
  • Software tools 1: Rstudio and Rscripts
  • Software tool 2: knitr and R markdown
  • What can happen if you don’t work reproducibly

If you know of lecture slides or other materials, please share the links so I can give them to my students. I will also publish a link list on this blog. Thank you!
