Very Very Rigorous Course for a beginner on R language and because of its nature, after completing just one course, I feel like I have gained a lot of knowledge and also familiarity with R language.

A very good course to read and get the valuable content of R language. This is for the students who want to learn and practice the basic and some intermediate concepts of data manipulation.

Excelent course to start with the basics of R language. It gives a modern introduction to R programming avoiding traditional topics like loops and conditionals keeping them for more advanced programming topics. It also covers almost all tidyverse packages with a shallow introduction to the most common packages.
I have acomplaint. The dataset for the final quiz was outdated, I managed to pass the quiz guessing variable names.

All in all good stuff. A couple of comments:
Swirl grading should be a little more flexible; sure cut is more succinct that nested ifelse's, but there's more than one way to skin the data-analytic cat in R, as I'm sure y'all are aware.
Also, I recommend more emphasis on data tables. I use them exclusively due to the dramatic performance improvement over data frames. And in my brief experiments, dplyr and tidyr commands worked on them too.
This first course was review for me. Nonetheless I definitely learned a few practical things that will up my data science game (which can always use upping).

Could have been better. Expected some interaction/videos from the mentors.

Very informative, however could be more complete. Some functions aren't introduced and the swirl package didn't accept other solutions path that would likewise lead to the same result. I believe also that some update would not harm. However, this course is really informative and, in my opinion, one of the best available. I really enjoy this course. Nice job and thank you very for sharing this knowledge.

I liked the swirl() package a lot, made me jump into writing codes into RStudio straight away. My only wish was to have some videos that would push me further

The material gets progressively tougher but I never felt totally overwhelmed. My only feedback is for the mentors to be more responsive in the forums - if we're posting it means we've already thrown everything at the question and still couldn't figure it out.

This is a good introduction to R but I do wonder if there could be a little more content, particularly in week 4.

Swirl should be accepting of other answers as well as different snippets of code will produce the same result.
At times this got frustrating and my reason of taking time to complete the course is because I'd leave things in between because of swirl issues.
This goes away and it is a 5-star as a beginner course; it is made beautifully to get us up to speed

The course is great, and very challenging. It is a little frustrating that the course requires 1 out of 2 programming assignments to be completed, but shows you as past due despite reaching that goal...
Getting this corrected and verified by Coursera has also been difficult.

The last quiz is super hard and makes you feel a bit unprepared. But overall I learned a lot from this course

+: I reached my goal for the course and now I understand a bit about R. I succeeded to pass within much shorter time than anticipated course duration. The course certificate is posted to my Linkedin profile.
-: No human mentors on the course discussion forum - all questions answered by other students. Automatic tests in swirl are too restrictive and do not accept perfectly correct student solutions slightly different to those anticipated by the authors. Week 2 assignment is much different from the reading material. Nothing taught about charting in R.
Overall comment: I think it is good value for money.

Useful, but it is all text so the course is not very fun

I think that the explanation of the material should be adopted to people that are not programmers

English is not my native language so i had troubles with tasks, because it is sometimes
hard to understand what you have to do. My advice - rewrite final quiz and make it more easy for understanding.

Very good overall. I feel that the first weeks are too easy relative to the last week - more involved practice and exercises would have been good before getting to the final quiz.

It's a great course for those who are just starting to learn R, It provides enriching for data analysis, however as a constructive feedback, I feel there could be improvements around how the exercise are planned and the submission process for the exercises

Very good starting course, covers all the basics.
My 2 cents: I would prefer more tests like the last one than the swirl lessons, they're more challenging thus you learn more.

Excellent intro to using Tidyverse (dplyr, tidyr, readr) to manipulate and clean data in R. Occasionally the readings and the SWIRL homework don't quite match up, but it's not a dealbreaker by any means. It was definitely worth my time overall.

Course is good. However, some of the packages discussed in the examples, such as ggplot etc. should be discussed in more detail.

the last exam is very hard, which need more knowledge than what you learned in previous chapter. the forum is not very helpful. lots questions are either not answered or answered with delay. But overall, you can get the basic concept from the course.

Une initiation intéressante et complète à R qui a l'avantage de donner des bons réflexes pour coder rapidement. Le caractère interactif des exercices de programmation est un gros plus. Attention : il n'y a pas de vidéos hormis la vidéo d'introduction. On peut aussi avoir des difficultés de syntaxe susceptibles de nous bloquer un bout de temps, notamment sur des fonctions où la documentation est un peu aride (je pense à cut et à spread sur lesquelles j'ai bien passé 1/4 du temps que j'ai consacré au total à ce MOOC).

I like the swirl exercises, but found the text lessons to be very short. Overall, good but I hope some video will be given in future modules.

A very nice introduction to the R programming environment. I learned a lot and it was fun to do!
