How can we improve R-exercises?

light-bulb-1002783_960_720Hey there! We’ve been sharing R exercise sets for about a year, and think this is a good moment to reflect and ask for your feedback. So here is your opportunity to have a say in where we take R-exercises next! We’d like to hone in a bit on the degree of difficulty of the exercises, because we’re thinking one size might not fit all of you.

Rather than the current one-size-fits-all approach we’re considering to create exercise sets aimed at specifically beginners, intermediate users and people who’ve been using R for years.

As an example, Dr Kumal said in the comments of examining data exercises that he thought the beginner level of the exercises did not reflect the usual level that visitors are looking for on this website. What do you think? Is there a specific level we should aim for or should we diversify and create beginnner, intermediate and advanced level sets for every topic we have on the site?

In addition to your ideas on this specific issue, we’d also be interested to receive general feedback on the content, format and direction R-exercises is taking. Would you like to see other things than just exercises, such as quizzes, tutorials, news items etc. Which packages/topics should we focus on? Do you have any problems with navigating the site?

Please share with us your ideas in the comments below

Again, this is your chance to have a say in what you’d like to see on R-exercises in the coming months. I promise to read all your feedback rather than feeding it into an R text mining script. And if you have so much feedback that it does not fit in the comment section below, I also encourage you to email me directly at [email protected]
