Date and Times
- Exam 01: October 12, 7:00 PM
- Exam 02: December 17, 8:00 AM
Conflict exams are available and scheduled through the CBTF.
The exams will administered through a combination of the CBTF Online and Gradescope. It will mirror completing a homework like assignment, but within the exam window. The exam itself will be downloadable through Gradescope. LIke a homework, you will need to upload a PDF or images, so be sure to leave yourself time at the end to complete this step.
The exams will cover all course content that precedes the exam.
For Exam 01, you should specifically expect:
- A problem where you bootstrap something.
- Additional problems that more directly test your “mathematical” ability to work with the course content.
Exam 02 is technically cumulative, but will focus on the materials covered in Homework 06 through Homework 10. Decision theory will not be covered on Exam 02.
When you open the exam, there will be a list of allowed resources. That list will include:
- A calculator.
- A student-created single-sheet formula sheet is allowed. (You may use both sides.)
- Symbolab or WolframAlpha for assistance with calculations.
- Any websites necessary to create and upload relevant files to Gradescope.
- Once these have been accessed, you should not change any answer or add any work to your exam.
- R and RStudio.
You will not have access to:
- Any additional notes or course materials.
Exams in STAT 510 will be scheduled and administered through the CBTF Online. Please read all documentation provided.
If you have accommodations identified by the Division of Rehabilitation-Education Services (DRES) for exams, please email your Letter of Accommodations to Carleen Sacris, CBTF Manager, at email@example.com.
In short, do not cheat. Any policies of the CBTF are the policies of this course, and academic integrity infractions related to the CBTF are infractions in this course. In addition to the Academic Integrity policies outlined by the CBTF, STAT 510 will hold itself to a higher standard.
Even with the use of the CBTF Online, we will not easily be able to detect all cheating. If we do detect cheating, that means it will have been an extremely flagrant violation and we will seek the maximum possible punishment which at minimum would be a failing grade for the course. PrairieLearn will ask you to accept an “honor code” at the start of the exam. You have been warned. Act accordingly.
Because you are using your own computer for this exam, you should be sure that your R and RStudio are setup and ready to go.
