Sweave Tutorial 2: Batch Individual Personality Reports using R, Sweave, and LaTeX
This post documents an example of using Sweave
to generate individualised personality reports based on
responses to a personality test.
Each report provides information on both the responses of the general
sample and responses of the specific respondent.
All source code is provided, and selected aspects are discussed,
including makefiles
use of \Sexpr
, figures, and LaTeX tables using Sweave.
Getting Started with Git, EGit, Eclipse, and GitHub: Version Control for R Projects
(a) installing Git using the Eclipse plugin Egit. (b) uploading repositories to GitHub, and (c) links to resources on Git, Git and LaTeX, and Git and R. The focus is on version control for people working on R, Sweave, and LaTeX related projects.

Inverting a Logistic Function
x
, a continuous property of a stimulus, looking at the effect on a variable p
, the probability of giving a response.
The function p(x) was assumed to be a logistic function.
The researcher wanted to know how to calculate the point on x
at which the
fitted logistic regression function equalled 0.5.
Fitting Nonlinear Regression Models to Multiple Participants Using SPSS
k
observations
for each of n
participants,
and where your aim is to fit a nonlinear function to the data of each participant
in order to save the parameter estimates for subsequent analysis.
This is a relatively common task in psychology.
You have multiple participants measured on
a numeric repeated measures variable
and you want to see how a dependent variable is related to this repeated measures variable.
And you want to do this separately for each participant.
For example, you might be modelling performance as a function of practice
or accuracy as a function of stimulus intensity.
