Package 'BetaBit'

Title: Mini Games from Adventures of Beta and Bit
Description: Three games: proton, frequon and regression. Each one is a console-based data-crunching game for younger and older data scientists. Act as a data-hacker and find Slawomir Pietraszko's credentials to the Proton server. In proton you have to solve four data-based puzzles to find the login and password. There are many ways to solve these puzzles. You may use loops, data filtering, ordering, aggregation or other tools. Only basics knowledge of R is required to play the game, yet the more functions you know, the more approaches you can try. In frequon you will help to perform statistical cryptanalytic attack on a corpus of ciphered messages. This time seven sub-tasks are pushing the bar much higher. Do you accept the challenge? In regression you will test your modeling skills in a series of eight sub-tasks. Try only if ANOVA is your close friend. It's a part of Beta and Bit project. You will find more about the Beta and Bit project at <https://github.com/BetaAndBit/Charts>.

The data from the study of Polish upper-secondary schools students.

Description

It was conducted firstly in the same time as PISA 2009 study, with use of the same cognitive tests and questionnaires as in PISA 2009, but on a different group of students: first grade students of upper-secondary schools (in Poland most of the students in a regular PISA sample attends lower-secondary schools). The students who participated in the first wave of the study were followed in the 2nd grade of upper-secondary school within the research program Our further study and work (Nasza Dalsza Nauka i Praca). Both studies were conducted by the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology Polish Academy of Sciences.

The Frequon (Frequency Analysis) Game

Description

The frequon function is used for solving problems in the data-based game ,,The Frequon Game”.

Usage

frequon(...)

Arguments

...

frequon function is called by different arguments, which vary depending on a problem that Bit is trying to solve. See Details in order to learn more about the list of possible arguments.

Details

Every time when some additional hints are needed one should add hint=TRUE argument to the frequon function.

In this game you are in contact with a group of people that are going to stop terrorists. You can communicate with them through frequon function.

In each call add subject parameter that will indicate which message you are answering. Add content parameter. It's value should match the request.

,,The Frequon Game” is a free of charge, educational project of the SmarterPoland.pl Foundation.

Usage

proton(...)

Arguments

...

The Regression Game

Description

The regression function is used for solving problems in the data-based game ,,The regression Game”.

Usage

regression(...)

Arguments

...

regression function is called with different arguments, which vary depending on a problem that Beta and Bit are trying to solve. See Details in order to learn more about the list of possible arguments.

Details

Every time when some additional hints are needed one should add hint = TRUE or techHint = TRUE argument to the regression function. Technical hints will point out R packages and/or functions which might help you to solve the task while "normal" hints provide you with methodological advices.

In this game you are helping Professor Pearson. You can communicate with him through the regression function.

In each call include the subject parameter (indicating which task you are trying to answer) and the content parameter (providing information Professor Pearson is asking you for in a given task).

Data used in the game comes from the study of Polish upper-secondary schools first grade students. It was conducted together with the PISA 2009 study using the same cognitive tests and questionnaires as in PISA 2009 but on a different group of students (in Poland most of the students in a PISA sample attends lower-secondary schools). The students who participated in the first wave of the study were followed in the 2nd grade of upper-secondary school within the research program Our further study and work (Nasza Dalsza Nauka i Praca). Both studies were conducted by the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology Polish Academy of Sciences. The original data was changed a little, to better fit the purpose of the game.
