The free, open-source R software for data processing and statistical analysis is widely used in education and research. In the 2014 campaign ("Digital Challenge" call for projects), a group of 8 lecturers and lecturer-researchers (stemming from various components of the University of Bordeaux and the INP) was formed to create a variety of self-training materials around crosscutting statistical notions. The first documents, concerning the use of R and descriptive inferential statistics, have just been finalized. Other fields will be focused on in 2016. Within the scope of this project, IdEx Bordeaux provided support to a doctoral student for her supplementary assignment, while MAPI provided her with technical and pedagogical expertise.
