Zombie Apocalypse Survival Test – R-Powered (using Concerto)

June 17, 2013

(This article was first published on Econometrics by Simulation, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This test is the first attempt to seriously assess the ability of individuals to survive a zombie apocalypse.  This test is administered using the R powered open-source testing platform Concerto developed at the University of Cambridge.

The test administers a number of questions which are expertly chosen in order to evaluate the likelihood of an individual surviving a zombie apocalypse.  The R code which powers the test be found on can be found on github.  The test makes extensive use of the RConcerto supplementary package that I am working.

The purpose of the package is to facilitate test creation using Concerto.  Many of the functions either create wrappers for concerto functions or build html objects such as the function mk.facebook(link) which takes a link and turns it into a facebook share button.

In order to implement the test, I run the code straight from a permalink created by dropbox which I demonstrate the use of in a previous post in the function dropbox.eval() which is also contained within the RConcerto package.
