Statistics in practice

Pick one article about statistics from the following list (this list will be updated during the semester as I find more interesting articles).

Once you have read it, write a page of single-spaced 12pt text with 1 inch margins answering the following questions:

  • Why did you choose that article? Why are you interested in that topic?
  • What did you learn, and how does it connect to what you have learned in class?
  • What questions about the paper were you left with? What did it fail to explain? Where was the evidence lacking?

Each essay will be graded according to a rubric (PDF). Or read some comments on previous essays
