Here is a short guide on how to get JMP to produce goodness of fit tests.

Here is an updated schedule of topics and assessments.

Reminders and Requests

1. Bring your homework solutions for the last two assignments to class on Thursday.
2. Remember, for every topic and problem, determine how sampling distributions are related.

If you intend on seeking an excused absence you may need to review the syllabus. You may also want to keep my phone number available to you on Tuesdays and Thursdays (see the syllabus).

If you do not intend to seek an excused absence, it is preferable that you not call or send email regarding your absence.

Recall, from the first day of class:

Advisory: JMP Utilization

Filed in Announcements

1. Reminder: Where do you get the data for the examples and problems? The book comes with a disk with all the data. It is also distributed on the course website. (side note: I’m working with the publisher on the applets.)

2. Homework problems that are marked as a Four Step Problem or Large Data Set problems are possible primary assessment questions just like the rest. You should use JMP for these problems. For these particular questions you will be allowed to bring raw JMP output (without added notes) to class, to be used during the assessments. This output will be needed for some problems. The output must be yours and you must be able to recreate the output. In some cases, I will have you create the output as part of your assessment.

3. Use of mobile phones and personal computers is not allowed during primary assessments.
