#### 3 packages on CRAN

When teaching statistics, it can often be desirable to uncouple the content from specific software packages. To easy such efforts, the Rosetta Stats website (<https://rosettastats.com>) allows comparing analyses in different packages. This package is the companion to the Rosetta Stats website, aiming to provide functions that produce output that is similar to output from other statistical packages, thereby facilitating 'software-agnostic' teaching of statistics.

This is a new version of the 'userfriendlyscience' package, which has grown a bit unwieldy. Therefore, distinct functionalities are being 'consciously uncoupled' into different packages. This package contains the general-purpose tools and utilities (see the 'behaviorchange' and the 'rosetta' packages for other functionality), and is the most direct 'successor' of the original 'userfriendlyscience' package. For example, this package contains a number of basic functions to create higher level plots, such as diamond plots, to easily plot sampling distributions, to generate confidence intervals, to plan study sample sizes for confidence intervals, and to do some basic operations such as (dis)attenuate effect size estimates.

Contains a number of functions that serve two goals. First, to make R more accessible to people migrating from SPSS by adding a number of functions that behave roughly like their SPSS equivalents (also see <https://rosettastats.com>). Second, to make a number of slightly more advanced functions more user friendly to relatively novice users. The package also conveniently houses a number of additional functions that are intended to increase the quality of methodology and statistics in psychology, not by offering technical solutions, but by shifting perspectives, for example towards reasoning based on sampling distributions as opposed to on point estimates.
