Semester page for STK4900 - Spring 2020

Here is a suggested solution to the exam. Note that in statistics there is often not one clearcut answer, so for instance for questions 2c and 3c alternative answers may be OK (and this suggested solution is generally more extensive than required).

We hope to complete the grading by end of week 26.

Hope you managed to get something out of also the second part of the course despite all the trouble we had to go through. Hope you have a nice summer!

f you have any questions concerning the exam assignment, you should visit the following link:

Your questions will then be forwarded to me by the administration, and I will answer questions on Tuesday 2nd, Friday 5th and the last day Monday 8th of June during office hours. As in usual exams, I cannot help you solving the exercises, but you can ask for clarification or about technical issues concerning the exam.

If there are issues raised in your questions, that are of interest to all students, I will post a message here on the semester page, so make sure you check it regularly during the exam period.

Finally, I just want to wish you all good luck!

As previously announced the home exam will be made available through Inspera on Friday May 29th, 2:30PM with a deadline for submission on Monday June 8th, 2:30PM.

The problems in exam will involve analyses of data sets using R (preferably) similarly to the mandatory assignments. You need thus figure out the R commands yoursself, but you should find sufficient information on how to do this from the lectures and exercises on the course pages. 

But in contrast with the mandatory assignments the questions are in general quite specific and not open-ended as in some of the questions in the mandatory assignments. In addition you are asked to be more specific about the theory behind the procedures you use, more similar to regular exam problems.

For the solution you hand in you can use latex or some other text processing program, but it can also be handwritten ("digital hand drawing"). The solution should also include R-commands...
