A word with instructors
A few years ago, Rguroo’s development initiated as one of the founders recognized the need for a statistical software that would take the focus away from how a graph is produced, or an estimate is obtained and allows concentration on the teaching of statistical concepts. R was selected as the basis for Rguroo, as it provides a good amount of graphical and analytic tools. Special attention has been made to provide tables and graphs in the output that help in pedagogy. Additionally, We have found the customizability of the output, where you can rearrange, add, and remove components of the output useful in live classroom teaching. Some of the advanced features in Rguroo may not be useful for teaching the core statistical concepts or possibly for elementary statistics courses, and for this reason, our menus are divided into “Basics” and “Details” menus. Finally, the multi-platform availability via a browser and Internet eliminates often painful task of downloading and installing software by students. Students can save their work on the cloud anytime, and continue their work anywhere on any computer where a browser and the Internet is available.
