Main Article Content
This report aims to introduce the fundamental features of the free Jamovi software to academics in the field of educational measurement for use at undergraduate and graduate level research. As such, after introducing the R based interface and the integrated development environment, the core functions of Jamovi are presented, the installation for GNU7Linux, Windows, and MacOS is explained and screenshots of frequently conducted statistical analyses are provided. Additionally, the module support of Jamovi is presented, along with a use case scenario on developing further functionality for Jamovi using modules. Specifically, conducting meta-analysis and Bayesian statistics using modules in Jamovi are explained through examples.
