Lab 1 - Meet the toolkit

STA 210 - Summer 2022

What to expect in lab

  • Introduction to the lab assignment (~ 5 - 10 minutes)

  • Work on the lab assignment in teams

  • Lab instructions posted on the course website.

  • Start each lab by finding your assignment repo in the course GitHub organization

  • This is where you will find the Quarto document and data to get started


  • You do not have to finish the lab in class. One work strategy is to get through the coding component during lab when I can help you on the spot, and leave the narrative writing until later.

  • When working in teams, do not pressure each other to finish early; use the time wisely to really learn the material and produce a quality report.

Take the survey

  • If you have not yet taken the survey, please finish it right now :


Check: Do you have the lab-1 repo?

  • Go to the GitHub course organization:

  • You should see a repo with the prefix lab-1- followed by your GitHub username

  • If you do not have this repo, please let me know!


Follow along: - Configure Git using SSH

  • Clone RStudio repo and start new project

  • Render document and produce PDF

  • Update name in YAML

    • Render, commit, push changes to GitHub

    • See updates in your GitHub repo

When you’re done with lab

  • Make sure all your final changes have been pushed to your GitHub repo

  • Submit the PDF of your responses to Gradescope

    • You can access Gradescope through Sakai or the course website

    • Login using your Duke NetID credentials

You’re now ready to complete the rest of lab!

Please “raise your hand” if you need help as you work on the lab
