This post is a followup to two earlier blog posts on reproducible research found <a href="http://rlhick.people.wm.edu/posts/stata-and-literate-programming-in-emacs-org-mode.html">here</a> and <a href="http://rlhick.people.wm.edu/posts/reproducible-research.html">here</a>. This post focuses on my usage of Stata for classroom assignments turned in by students. These assignments entail
</p>
<ol class="org-ol">
<li>Model Description including mathematical equations (Latex)
</li>
<li>Data Summaries and Figures
</li>
<li>Stata Code
</li>
<li>Stata Results
</li>
<li>Quality publishing system to produce a problem set document containing all of the above elements
</li>
<li>Easy for students to use (given a willingness to learn the markdown syntax)
</li>
</ol>
<p>
These are different from my own research requirements. For me, emacs org-mode is the best tool for the reasons I outline in the prior posts linked above. For my students, however, learning Emacs and org-mode is totally impractical. This post quickly surveys the three available options: Markdoc, Markstat, and Jupyter Notebook.
