Generating a random order for students to select their internships (or anything really)

R script to generate random numbers merged with a list of student names retrieved from Canvas My students have to choose where they want to have their internship in societal psychology. Since some internships seems to be more popular, I make a random list of numbers from 1:number of students which I then merge with the list of student names retrieved from Canvas. This then becomes the order in which the students select their internships.

Connecting to canvas lms from R

I often use information from canvas (in my case this is the University of Bergen version mitt.uib.no) when I prepare assignments and tasks for my students. I use Shiny and R as tools to manage my course, so I need data in formats that can readily be processed by R. It can be a pain to export information, like student names and emails etc. from within the web-interface in canvas, so I have been looking for better ways to gain access.

Scraping Corona data from the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the Norwegian Institute of Public health websites

Disclaimer. This post has simply been a personal exercise in webscraping data that others have made available. I am also personally curious to see the correspondence between the observed numbers of patients being hospitalized and in ICU and the predictions given the different RE-estimates produced. This project uses daily updates about patients hospitalized and in ICU scraped from the Norwegian Directorate of Health in tandem with the predictions from the report “Covid-19 epidemic: Risk assessment and response in Norway”1 published by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) building on modelling conducted by the Imperial College COVID-19 Response Team.

SDQ Predictive algoritm in R

Adapted from syntax available at the SDQ website. The predictive algorithm is based on up to twelve input variables: phyper = SDQ hyperactivity score from parent SDQ thyper = SDQ hyperactivity score from teacher SDQ shyper = SDQ hyperactivity score from self-report SDQ pconduct = SDQ conduct problems score from parent SDQ tconduct = SDQ conduct problems score from teacher SDQ sconduct = SDQ conduct problems score from self-report SDQ

Markdown CV NFR style

Lag din CV tilpasset Norges Forskningsråds maler - i R! I denne posten vil jeg vise hvordan jeg laget min CV i R, tilpasset malen til Norges Forskningsråd1. Ved å bruke R kan deler av CV-oppdateringen automatiseres, og følgende funksjoner er tilgjengelig i denne malen: Antall publikasjoner, antall første- og sisteforfatterskap, antall siteringer, h-indeks og i10-indeks hentes automatisk fra Google Scholar (dersom du har profil). Antall inviterte foredrag og antall deltagere for en gitt periode kan fylles ut automatisk ved kobling til oversikt i en ekstern Excel fil.

Building a blogdown publication list from bibtex file (updated)

The best way to do this now is to follow the guide on the following page. I tried to build markdown files to use for publication section of my blog programmatically using r. I came close, but not all the way there. The following code takes a bibtex file, reads it into r, formats the output and splits each citation out to a separate markdown file. Unfortunately, there were som spaces and formatting errors that I was not able to get rid of, so I had to go through some manual cleaning up afterwards.

css, bibtex, blogdown

Auxillary files can be placed in the content folder, i.e. aux and linked to in yaml header: csl: aux/apa.csl css: aux/APAStyle.css keep_md: yes bibliography: aux/lifeevents.bib rmarkdown will then use this to produce html file in public/post folder. At least bibtex file, not so sure about css though…
