The purpose of this project is to facilitate the creation, maintenance, and permanent storage of statistical computation objects that empower authors to publish reproducible and reusable research (in the form of a Compendium) through a series of web services. A Compendium is defined as a document with (open-access) references to (remotely) archived Computations (including Data, Meta-data, and Software) that allow us to reproduce, and reuse the underlying analysis. This implies that there is a complete separation of text and computing. The underlying philosophy is that reproducible and reusable computing leads to better science, and deep learning (as opposed to rote memorization) and supports students to engage in various types of socially constructivist learning activities (such as group discussion, collaboration, and peer review). The use of this system is free of charge for educational and research purposes.
FreeStatistics.org is closely linked to Wessa.net: a project that provides Web-Enabled Scientific Services & Applications with the purpose to make statistical science easily available to anyone. To enable users to easily access statistical science we need to make sure that :
In future we plan development of the following:
