Can you open the pdf and it’s not blank?
Is the report anonymous?
Is the brief description of Metropolis algorithm included (and it’s not complete nonsense)? Provide also a brief comment on how clear you think that description is (and potentially mention errors if you see them).
In 1 a), is the implementation of the
density_ratio function included?
In 1 b), is the implementation of the
metropolis_bioassay function included?
2 a) Is the proposal/jumping distribution reported ?
2 b) Are the starting points or the mechanism how they are generated reported?
2 c) Is the number of draws per chain reported?
2 d) Is the warm-up length reported?
2 e) Is the number of chains reported?
2 f) and 2 g) Are line plots of the chains included? (Separate plots for alpha and beta)
Is there a discussion on the convergence of the chains?
Is it mentioned which implementation of Rhat is used ? (Possible answers mentioned in peergrade)
Is the brief description of Rhat included (and it’s not complete nonsense)? Provide also a brief comment on how clear you think that description is (and potentially mention errors if you see them).
Are the Rhat-values for alpha and beta reported?
Is the interpretation of Rhat values correct (correct interpretation will be given in peergrade)?
Does the report contain a scatter plot of the draws of alpha and beta? Do the results look reasonable, that is, roughly like in the Figure below (figure attached in peergrade)?
Overall quality of the report
Does the report follow the formatting instructions?
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.
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.
