1) Analysis Strategy In this section you should describe how you are going to address the research aim(s) of the study described


1) Analysis Strategy

In this section you should describe how you are going to address the research aim(s) of the study described. Note, you may not need as many analyses as there appear to be questions as some may use different pieces of information from the same analysis. The marking of this section will be based on the completeness of your descriptions of:

  • data cleaning and variable recoding
  • any descriptive statistics or visualizations you will use prior to running models,
  • the analyses you undertook (description of the models),
  • how you will check your model (assumptions and diagnostics including the criteria you have used to evaluate each),
  • specifically what information from each model provides the answer to the questions including details of your α levels and any required corrections AND
  • rationales for all choices.

Your analysis strategy should not contain any results.


A reader of your report should be able to more or less replicate your analyses without referring to your R code.

2. Results

The results section should follow logically from your analysis strategy and present the results of all aspects of your approach. A typical structure would begin by presenting descriptive statistics and move on to inferential tests. Things to remember:

  • All key model results should be presented (tables very useful) in the main body of the report
  • You should provide full interpretation of key results
  • Model assumption and diagnostic checks should be noted (where reference to both decision rules from the strategy, and figures in the appendix are acceptable).

3. Discussion (very brief)

The Discussion section should contain very brief (1-2 sentence) summary statements linking the formal results to each of the research questions. The marking of this section will be based on the coherence and accuracy of these statements. This should not contain repetition of detailed statistical results, but should refer to those presented in the analysis.

Assumption and Diagnostics Appendix

In addition to the above, you may include an assumption appendix. This section has no page limit. You may use this to present assumption and diagnostic plots.

Please note:

  • You must still describe your assumption tests in your strategy, including how you will evaluate them.
  • You must still summarise the results in the results section of the main report.
  • You must refer accurately to the figures and tables labels presented in the appendix.

The assumption appendix is only for assumption and diagnostic figures and results. Any results from your main models including in the appendix will not be marked.

Finally, you do not need to include an introduction to the study unless you feel it is helpful in writing your analysis strategy.


You are required to submit two files:

  1. a complete report knitted to PDF
  2. and the associated .Rmd file

Knitting to PDF

Please note that to knit to pdf, you should:

  1. Make sure the tinytex package is installed.
  2. Makes sure the ‘yaml’ (bit at the very top of your document) looks something like this:


title: "this is my report title"

author: "B1234506"

date: "13/08/2021"

output: bookdown::pdf_document2


If you cannot knit to pdf, then try the following steps:
1) Knit to html file 2) Open your html in a web-browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox) 3) Print to pdf (Ctrl+P, then choose to save to pdf) 4) Submit the pdf you just saved.


The focus of this report is on your ability to create reproducible results, implementing analyses to answer research questions and interpreting the results. However, we do require that the reports are neatly formatted and written clearly. Below are some pointers:

  • Figures and tables should be numbered and captioned, and referred to in the text; important statistical outcomes should be summarised in the text.
  • Reporting should be clear and consistent. If in doubt, follow APA 7th Edition guidelines.
  • Your report should be a maximum of 6 sides when the default formatting and font settings within RStudio are used when knitting your file.
  • Code chunks should be hidden in the pdf produced by your rmd file. To tell RMarkdown to not show your code when knitting to HTML, add echo=FALSE next to the r that appears after the backticks.
