The final exam will be in 120 Latimer, 12-3pm, 17 August. The final has 41 multiple-choice questions. It covers chapters 1-22 (but not chapter 23).
There was a bug in the key to the assignment for chapter 22, question 3. It's fixed now. Sorry!
If you get an error message when you click chapter 15 from the assignment page, reload the assignment page--you have a stale version in your cache. Alternatively, you can navigate directly to chapter 15 at www.stat.berkeley.edu/~stark/SticiGui/Text/ch15.htm
There was a bug in chapter 6 and the problem set for chapter 6; fixed now (I hope!). It involved questions 1 and 2 on the problem set--but only for some students. The issue was that some heteroscedastic scatterplots were not being labelled as such. If you are one of the speed demons who has already submitted that problem set, you should clear your browser's cache and restart the browser before working on the problem set again. If your grade was affected, let your GSI know. Sorry for my error!
There will be no office hours tomorrow, 4 July. Happy Independence Day!
The assignments are now available for you to log in and to submit.
Office hours start Monday morning; be sure to pick a GSI and sign up for office hours (first come, first served). Once you pick a GSI, and a weekly office hour schedule, that's it for the term—all your office hours will be with that GSI, at the same time every week.
If you sign up for office hours with me and will not be attending, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance, so someone else can use your spot.
Welcome to Statistics N21, the first online course offered by UC Berkeley!
This course has no lectures. It takes place entirely over the Internet, except the final exam (on campus, 17 August 2007, 12-3pm). There are approximately four online assignments due every week. There will be a high ratio of Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) to students. GSIs will be available by email; GSIs and the instructor will hold online office hours on a sign-up basis. There will be a threaded discussion board. If you will not be within driving distance of campus on 17 August but will be in a major metropolitan area in the U.S., alternative arrangements can be made to take the exam with a proctor.
All students are expected to fill out a course evaluation at the end of the class, to provide feedback on how online instruction worked, and give suggestions for improvement.
