Final Exam Review Guide
Each student is expected to take a final-term exam. This exam will involve statistical analyses that have been covered in the classes before this exam. It is designed to assess each student’s capability to understand statistical results conducted by others. Students are provided with statistical results from research articles and expected to answer questions on the interpretation of them. Real life examples may be different from the format that was practiced in the class because researchers use different formats when they report their results. Students who understand ‘which value means what’ should be able to know the right answers. This closed-book test allows students to use their note that is helpful for the exam.
