To collect a wide variety of cases of psychological statistics education using R, we carried out semi-structured interviews with several university teachers who teach psychological statistics using R. In the interview, we asked several questions about how to use R in their classes, as well as the ones about teachers' background and general topics related to the psychological statistics education. Qualitative data analysis of interview data revealed that (a) there were a variety of teaching forms and curriculum, (b) statistical literacy of students were also diverse, and (c) teachers tried to consider teaching method according to best suitable for the statistical literacy of their students. Commonly-observed and rare but suggestive troubles in teaching were extracted. Based on these results, we could summarize teaching methods for developing teaching materials.
