Teaching Resources

  • metaforGUI - Software to run basic meta-analyses in the R statistical package (based on the metafor package). Primarily developed as a teaching resource for teaching fundamental meta-analytic principles and procedures to students that are not necessarily proficient with R (while at the same time introducing them to the R environment without first having to undertake a steep learning curve). Edit: currently the free statistical software JASP includes a GUI for the metafor meta-analysis package.
