About the Course

Data visualization is a critical skill for anyone that routinely using quantitative data in his or her work - which is to say that data visualization is a tool that almost every worker needs today. One of the critical tools for data visualization today is the R statistical programming language. Especially in conjunction with the tidyverse software packages, R has become an extremely powerful and flexible platform for making figures, tables, and reproducible reports. However, R can be intimidating for first time users, and there are so many resources online that it can be difficult to sort through without guidance. To fill that need, this course is intended for learners who have little or no experience with R but who are looking for an introduction to this tool. By the end of this course, students will be able to import data into R, manipulate that data using tools from the popular tidyverse package, and make simple reports using R Markdown. The course is designed for students with good basic computing skills, but limited if any experience with programming....

So the assignments are only for the sake of getting ahead to the next week lessons. If you even copy paste the attachment code from the video into the answer sheet, that also gets submitted. Maybe you should put up some answer sheet for the check purpose on the backend and match it with the student's answer. In that way, assignment might be an assignment, if you know what I mean.

Otherwise, it was a great course to get started with especially the cheat sheets

A useful intro into R but there was very little about visualization.
