  • Some missing
  • Yes

Q5 - 1 point

In a), is the reported resulting posterior correct …?

  • It is not reported, that the posterior distribution is a … .
  • It is reported, that the posterior distribution is …, but the numerical values for the parameters are incorrect.
  • It is reported, that the posterior distribution is …, and the numerical values for the parameters are correct.

Q6 - 1 point

In part b), is there at least one point estimate reported. Sample based estimates are also ok. Points should be given if the method is right, even if the result is wrong due to a wrong posterior distribution being used. With the right posterior, mean, median, and mode are all approximately ….

  • No
  • Yes

Overall quality of the report

Q11 -

Does the report follow the formatting instructions?

  • Not at all
  • Little
  • Mostly
  • Yes

Q12 -

In case the report doesn’t fully follow the formatting instructions, specify the formatting instruction that is not followed. If applicable, specify the page of the report, where this difference in formatting is visible.

Q13 -

Please provide also feedback on the presentation (e.g. text, layout, flow of the responses, figures, figure captions). Part of the course is practicing making data analysis reports. By providing feedback on the report presentation and other students can learn what they can improve or what they already did well. You should be able to provide constructive or positive feedback for all non-empty reports, even if there is nothing to say about the technical correctness of the answers. You can also provide feedback on code.
