Meeting Notes:

  • Should we meet every 2 weeks or monthly? Kevin will ask the group by email for their preference.
  • Where to focus our efforts for next year?
    • We looked at the groupSEND function to consider how it could be enhanced to support SEND analysis of many kinds:
      • completeness statistics
      • study interpretation
      • cross-study analysis.
      • Associating study Element with each data point.
    • Script in R to enable editing SEND files in Excel and convert them back to *.xpt. Designed to also facilitate the creation of custom domains.
    • Jared has a script in SAS that does something similar (Excel to xpt) and is better than what we have in the repository now. He will see if he can share it.
    • Kevin may create an LB domain visualization for SEND data as a test of the groupSEND function.
    • Continue work on the script repository's index
      • The BG script can run but can't write to any folder except a temp folder. Maybe we can get the script use this folder.
  • Kevin shared what he has prepared to help people evaluate the groupSEND function.
