Running the scripts

  1. These scripts are setup as an R package. Thus, they assume that you have first opened serialfm.Rproj. This should open RStudio.
  2. Data were initially analyzed in SPSS, but all analyses for the publication were done in R. To convert from SPSS to CSV, convert_spss_to_csv.R
  • If starting from the CSV file, can skip.
  1. To rerun the analyses and statistics, analyze_data.R
  2. To regenerate graphs, use graphs.R. This pulls from existing Excel sheets from the original manual data scoring pipeline.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
