Tutorials

While the Small n Stats group has historically focused on developing and evaluating programs for use in behavioral science, we have recently begun short youtube tutorials to demonstrate basic and advanced technical skills. This is a taxing, time-intensive process that we are just now beginning to explore. We will rely on the community's feedback to determine how desired this type of endeavor would be.

Individual tutorials are listed below. Each series will include a list of shorter videos that the viewer will follow along with. Each video should last between 5-10 minutes, with the aim that the viewer can easily re-view a video if something seems unclear or uncertain. The user is encouraged to follow along with the source code modeled in each video before advancing to the next.

Charting and Graphs in Excel

This tutorial is focused on showing viewers how to construct several of the charts and figures commonly used in behavioral sciences. This is a basic tutorial that entails the entering of data, construction of visual figures, styling and aesthetics, and some other tips and techniques for handling single-case data.

This is a more basic tutorial. No prior experience with Excel is necessary, though it would be helpful. Users are encouraged to following along with the programming modeled in the tutorials and re-create the plots and data on their own machines.

Mobile Application Development

This tutorial is focused on modeling how to put together a simple cross platform application that will work on Apple and Android devices. This will entail the setup of the Integrated Desktop Environment (IDE), installing Xamarin, building the user interface, operating the emulator(s), deploying the application, and debugging along the way.

This is a fairly intermediate tutorial. Knowledge of programming (c#) is extremely helpful, but not required. Users are encouraged to following along with the programming modeled in the tutorials and re-create the solutions on their own machines.
