Dear Jonathon,

I want to incorporate jamovi in my undergratuate teaching, I think it's perfect for my students profile.

I've detected a couple of errors that I'd like to report.

-- When I save a csv file as omv and then I open it, the text fields are not correctly recovered

I read the same issue some days ago, but seems the problem is still there.

- I also detect a small issue in the reliability analysis. The scale statistics option (mean and sd) offers the average of the item means and sds instead of the scale values.

Thanks for this software!

the fix to text field issue will be fixed in the next release (1.1.6).

let me ask ravi about the reliability analysis.

with thanks

about the reliability analysis issue, so the sd for scale is the standard deviation of the total score and the mean of the scale is indeed formed by averaging the items. We return the same values as the psych R package returns. I'm not completely sure what you are looking for though...
