Survey analysis and reporting using SPSS (or any other statistical software package) may meet the gold standard for statistical robustness, but leave us spending time copying and pasting cross-tabs into reports. Survey dashboards that incorporate weighted survey data – such as data from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) – and inferential statistics are a better alternative, but how do you coordinate a mix of survey specialists and business intelligence professionals to produce them? This presentation will explore UCalgary’s journey across disciplinary boundaries to incorporate R into our workflow and build survey research and data science literacy.
