Like many others applied quantitative researchers, I learned statistics on the point-and-click software SPSS. However, when I wanted to transition to R, I couldn’t find any material that demonstrated how to do an analysis in SPSS and R simultaneously.

As the TA of our intro stat sequence, I’ve begun creating labs that include instructions in SPSS (point and click) and the corresponding R script necessary to produce the same output. If you’re interested in transitioning from SPSS to R, I hope you’ll find this helpful!
