The December 15 tutorial covers a reasonably broad range of topics including measurement models - the summated rating model, factor analysis and item response theory; mapping and building dynamic web-based user interfaces. Most of what we talk about is in the R workbook that you can download and open in RStudio you might have to right-click and “save link as” to save it as an .Rmd file:

  • Tutorial R Workbook rmd

Time permitting, we will discuss a couple of different shiny apps. First, a really simple example just to show how it works and then a more complex problem that uses the data we generated in the measurement model.

  • Simple Shiny Example zip
  • Shiny Measurement Example zip

Both of these files are zip archives that you can download and run locally in RStudio.
