Planet Money Podcast: #677 The Experiment Experiment

A few years back, a famous psychologist published a series of studies that found people could predict the future — not all the time, but more often than if they were guessing by chance alone.

The paper left psychologists with two options.

"Either we have to conclude that ESP is true," says Brian Nosek, a psychologist at the University of Virginia, "or we have to change our beliefs about the right ways to do science."

Nosek is going with Option B — and not just for psychology experiments. He thinks there's something wrong with the way we're doing science. And he launched a massive project to try to fix it.

Quick R

This is a great source for basic R functionality like importing and manipulating data.  It also has very helpful information on making graphs (see this page).

Get R (and RStudio)

Just getting started as an R user?  You can first try running R on QUBES Hub here, without installing anything.  Eventually, though you will want to install it on your own computer by downloading it here.  RStudio provides a friendlier interface for using R, and can be downloaded here.  Rstudio requires R to be installed, so start by downloading R.
