Below are participants’ quotes from workshop evaluations.
“I effectively learned in a compressed day what I usually learn in a month. Bob was able to take the complex and make it simple. I now have a much better understanding of how functions and commands are organized within the R universe."
“I was surprised that the instructor pointed out areas where SAS did things better than R. Refreshingly unbiased."
“I liked the very easy going atmosphere. The instructor is very helpful and tuned in to where the students are."
“The instructor was very approachable and encouraging."
“I liked how the instructor demonstrated the progression of flexibility with graphics."
“Great introductory course, covered a lot of ground."
“I liked having the actual syntax commands listed within the previously made document. I think the PowerPoint and other reference materials are the most useful portion of the class. I can see myself using them A LOT in the future."
“This was a great introduction to R. I wished I’d taken this early before. Clear and easy to understand."
“The organization of material was logical and built as we went along."
“Very good mix of PowerPoint slides and working in R."
“I liked the text file that followed along with the program section and themes. Clarified some basic questions that I had about terms and language that I did not have experience with, even though I use R with a degree of regularity."
“I really needed this class. I’ve tried to dive into R on my own, but I learn better having someone show the steps."
“The notes are helpful. I can review this on my own later."
“Very clear presentation, well-structured and easy to understand."
“What I liked best was the instructor’s ability to give alternate ways of doing a task, clear expertise, and willingness to help."

“The class examples make it very easy to understand what R is doing with each piece of code."
“The handout is organized step by step so is easy to understand."
“Mr. Muenchen is a wonderful instructor. Very informative and passionate about R. I believe having him as an instructor was the best part."
