Monographic Session to teaching support with deduceR


The Monographic Session for teaching support with Deducer is directed to the teaching staff of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) who wants to use this software for teaching of subjects related to statistics or Data Management. The aim of the course isn't to expose the statistical tools but rather provide resources for the use of this software.


Deducer ( is designed to be a free easy to use alternative to proprietary data analysis software. It has a menu system to do common data manipulation and analysis tasks, and an excel-like spreadsheet in which to view and edit data frames. The goal of the project is two fold.

  • Provide an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for R, encouraging non-technical users to learn and perform analyses without programming getting in their way.
  • Increase the efficiency of expert R users when performing common tasks by replacing hundreds of keystrokes with a few mouse clicks. Also, as much as possible the GUI should not get in their way if they just want to do some programming.
    Deducer is designed to be used with the Java R (JGR).
