Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

7. How understandable are the course goals?

Course goals:

After the course the students must be able to:

Plan experiments according to a proper experimental design. Choose the appropriate experimental design for different circumstances.

Analyse and evaluate experimental results properly according to different methods (ANOVA, regression ...)

Describe and apply fundamentals (in statistics and exp design) such as hypothesis testing, degrees of freedom, factorial design, and regression and so on according to course material.

Master students (KBT120):

Understand and apply fundamentals in multivariate data analysis (PCA and PLS).

- I think the course goals are good but just included the " basic" of the course. » (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)
- More hands on examples on the problems will make students understand faster, as i find some parts of the textbook are hard to understand after first few read thru.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

- bt-staten hjälpte en del för förståelsen.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- BT-statistikkursen hjälpte väldigt mycket, gjorde att man förstod en massor mycket snabbare.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- matematisk statistik (K) matematisk modellering» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)
- I think the basic of statistic background will be necessary to give in the previous lecture. The marterial for this course is too much. I coludnt reach all of material in the book deeply. And for this course, we need to do a lot of excersice and I feel I didn"t have enough time to do that. » (No, the goals are set too high)

- Tentan kändes väldigt viktad (höhöhö) mot Anova tabellen. Kändes inte som att tentan alls testade hela kursen. Det var 4 uppgifter som i grund gick ut på att göra 4 olika sorters anova tabeller för att sedan utvärdera resultatet. Sen att merparten jag snackat med inte alls förstod fråga 3 eller 6 gör det ju inte bättre.» (No, not at all)
- Tentan testade oss inte alls på många av de saker vi gått genom på kursen. Saker som saknades var nested design, steepest ascent, mixture/simplex design, mean value confidence interval, variance confidence interval. De flesta av uppgifterna var bara varianter av ANOVA. Det borde definitivt varit mycket mer variation i uppgifterna, som i tidigare tentor. Uppgiftsformuleringen är knasig i många fall, speciellt problem 3 på den här tentan. Det var inte många som förstod det.» (No, not at all)
- I think that task one and two were very similar. And the other calcualtion tasks were as well quite similar. We have learnt much more in the course such as nested design and optimization, I was not able to test my knowledge on that, i would have prefered one more calculation task insted of a theory qusetion.» (No, not at all)
- There were no testing of knowledge of how to plan experiments in the exam, which I thought was supposed to be important, apparently it is more important to be able to construct lots of ANOVA tables.» (Quite OK)
- Question number 3 and 6 were tricky and we hadn"t got much guidance how to solve such problems during lessons and practices.» (Quite OK)
- I should study more and had more preparation to the exam. But the exam is OK with the goal.» (Quite OK)
- I found the exam have more complex and tricky questions, which had not been brought up in class, than basic ones, which I thought was the main goal of the course.» (Quite OK)
- Just, on the last page of the examination, it was mentioned that which model are we supposed to choose, so at the end, I hadn"t enough time to correct the mistakenly chosen PCA model. It would be better if it had been mentioned in the start page.» (Definitely)

- The teacher covered materials that wasn"t useful for us when we attempt to solve assignments» (They covered too little material)
- Too many power point slides, these are naturally hurried through and you don"t remember much. Lazy teachers makes for lazy students.» (They covered too little material)
- I thought the lectures about RSM and linear regression were quite unstructured. I didn"t learn anything about those subject at all at the lectures.» (They covered too little material)
- Slightly too much material covered in a lecture (i.e. a chapter in a relatively short lecture), but it is depended on the students" effort to follow» (They covered somewhat too much material)
- Kändes väldigt flyktiga i utlärningen. väldigt mycket utsvävningar och inte så mycket konkret om vad vi ska kunna. Slides med mycket text är inte bra. Men uppgifterna som gjordes under föreläsningarna var bra!» (They covered somewhat too much material)
- some lectures are too wide and not easy to understand the real topic.» (They covered somewhat too much material)
- Multivariate analysis using SIMCA is very interesting topics. It can be a course of itself. I also find the various factorial design is very complicated and very important for our future needs especially the Robust analysis. I suggest more time to be given for this chapter.» (They covered much too much material)
- I think many subjects have been mentioned during the course, which was not good. due to the time limitations and the volume of the project and assignments we couldnät go deep into the subject. therefore, teachers just touched upon each of the subjects and the important task was for us to study them and learn them by heart. If less material was taught but in more depth, it was much more valuable than this amount of subjects but on the surface.» (They covered much too much material)

- Mostly relies on slides.» (Fair)
- Som sagt innan.» (Adequate)
- Claes is good, but I think he should change his PowerPoint presentation. It"s quite pointless to have slides where all info is taken straight from the book! » (Adequate)
- Didn"t give much more than the book said.. Everything seems easy when I listened to the lectures, but when I tried to solve the excercises it was difficult.. So maybe there can be more "if you have this kind of problem you should consider..." » (Adequate)
- Good tutor. Perhaps focus less on derivations of equations and more focus on how to use them.» (Good)
- The lecturer, Claes was a very good lecturer.» (Excellent)
- The examples hi did helped me undersatand the calculations» (Excellent)
- Teach us how to think in common sense to understand tough subjects in this course.» (Excellent)

- Specially Jan had a lot of problems in conveying his ideas to the students. Althought he is very knowledgeable about the material, but when he couldn"t convey them what"s the use of it???!!! this is the reason that I say Jan"s lectures are very poor, and most of the time you don"t understand anything, you just have to write whatever he writes on the board...!» (Very low)
- Both Claes and Calle speaks very good English, but Jan Rodmar"s English is really difficult to understand, even for me as a Swedish student. It must be even harder for the foreign students to understand the steps in the calculation classes. This problem lowers the overall rating of the course: if a course is given to foreign master students, it should have a higher quality in the English language. One hesitates to ask questions during lessons, when you don"t understand the answer. » (Low)
- Rodmar funkar bra när man ställer frågor till han öga mot öga. Men i en föreläsningsal har han inte riktigt kraften att nå ut.» (Low)
- It was impossible to hear what Jan Rodmar said under his lectures.» (Low)
- Man förstår (typ) vad de säger om man är svensk eftersom claes pratar svengelska. Det måste dock vara oerhört svårt för utländska mastersstudenter att lyckas luska ut vad han menar ibland.» (Low)
- I think claes was really good i english but the lecture teacher was a bit harder to understand..» (Adequate)
- Sort of difficult to hear Rodmar though.» (Good)
- The only one who was lacking was Jan Rodmar.» (Good)
- Most teachers were good, but it was quite hard to hear what Jan Rodmar was saying.» (Good)
- Most had good pronounciation and word language but Jan Rodmar was difficult to understand during exercise lectures. And these are very important for the exam.» (Good)
- The lectures were good, the exercises were a joke» (Excellent)

- Gick aldrig på någon eftersom vi haft rodmar på en dator-föreläsning i åk 1 vilket avskräckt mig. Vet att jag ändå inte kommer att höra ett smack!» (?)
- good examples but too slow pace and very poor English.» (Poor)
- Overhead-bilder på datorlösningar är ingen bra metod att lära ut hur man gör beräkningarna. Tentagenomgången var inte heller bra, var endast en genombläddring av inscannade handskrivna lösningar på projektorn. Det var svårt att läsa på tavlan vad som skrevs och svårt att höra vad som sades.» (Poor)
- Jan is really bad, you can"t understand him and the assignments he takes up during the tutorial are bad. To ignore an opinion every student has and keep on having him is horrible» (Poor)
- Even though Jan Rodmar is very helpful it was very hard to hear and understand what he was saying during the exercises.» (Poor)
- The lectures were very good thought and I don"t want to point fingers but Jan Rodmars exercise lectures were not good it was very hard to understand what he said and what he wrote on the blackboard. I can imagine how difficult it was for the exchange students!!!» (Poor)
- Rodmar känns lite för gammal för detta. Och uppgifterna känns lite för stora. Det känns onödigt att behöva sitta och göra en uppgift som kräver 1-2 timmar beräkningar när man kan göra den mindre och fortfarande lära ut samma sak.» (Fair)
- Good structure, but sometimes hard to hear.» (Fair)
- they wasn"t fucused on the same things that came in the exam.» (Adequate)

- would have been better if we could use the exercises in the book, or at least get better answers in the example material because at the moment the don´,t always give a full answer» (Good)
- Although the first lectures there weren"t enough handouts, so when I came a little late there were none left.» (Excellent)

21. What do you think about the optimization project?

- OK, but hated the report. To many tables...»
- Either too many groups or too few teachers there to help. If you got stuck in the project you more or less had to visit jan or niclas after the lesson to get help.»
- The project give us (students) hands-on on experimental design, which is a great experience. Furthermore, the simulation programme give me a clearer picture on how to develop and design an experiment towards optimized condition.»
- Difficult at first, but a very good way of learning. The pairing in groups was not fair for everyone, because some swedish students had to do all the work.»
- It was very good but I hade to do al the work myself since my group members did not understand anything. I don"t think that it was fair when some groups hade many foreign students and some hade none.»
- Very good, one learnt a great deal while discussing the project with your partner. A little difference in the teaching abilities: Leif is a very good teacher but Adnan was sometimes hard to understand and to discuss with. »
- It was good!»
- Good for learning. »
- It is really good and interesting, but I have some trouble about the knowledge we used in the project. We should have the lecture first,master the knowledge, and then we use the knowledge in the project. The truth is that we have the project first and learn the knowledge in the lecture later.»
- It is good experiences!! Highly educational, very challenging and the pressure to perform is surreal. »
- Real good! Fun and good learning experience.»
- Very nice, apart from the group members»
- Very good.»
- It"s very good. it really help to more understand the course»
- Very well designed, with large relationship with the main course goals.»
- Fun!»
- Excellent teaching tool»
- BRA!»
- Väldigt bra, lyfte verkligen kursen en massor och man lärde sig riktigt mycket. Tyckte det var roligt och lärorikt. Så här bra projekt borde man ha i alla kurser. Handledarna var en stor del i att det blev så bra. Ett sådant här projekt kräver bra handledare, annars kommer nog folk inte vara så pigga på att arbeta extra med det.»
- Projektuppgiften var rolig samtidigt som den gav en praktisk tillämpning av hur man kan använda metoderna i kursen. Något som jag ser mycket negativt på är gruppindelningen i projektet. Jag och flera andra svenska studenter blev placerade att arbeta med utbytestudenter med dåliga kunskaper. Detta gjorde att man fick göra stora delar av projektet på egen hand. Under de schemalagda projektövningarna var det dessutom mycket svårt att få hjälp (för få lärare eller för mycket elever som behöver hjälp). När man dessutom får reda på att utbytesstudenterna är placerade med svenska studenter för att de ska klara projekten lättare bli man förbannad. Det har alltså varit problem tidigare år, att utbytesstudenter inte klarar projektet p.g.a dåliga kunskaper. Är det då rätt att låta dessa studenter glida på andra samtidigt som man ökar belastningen avsevärt för de svenska studenhterna. Detta borde ha lösts genom att sätta in extra lärarstöd, inte genom att lasta över problemet på de svenska studenterna. Resultatet av detta blir att utbytesstudenter med dåliga kunskaper blir godkända på projektet utan att ha lärt sig så mycket samtidigt som de svenska studenterna måste lägga allderles för mycket tid på projektet och får svårt att hinna med att studera övrigt kursmaterial.»
- I would have preferred to not have "problem based learning" thing. It was extremely difficult to know what to do since it was difficult to get a hold of the teacher since he had to go around to help all the time. Why on earth was there not a more detailed description of what should be done? That was a terrible mistake. When you sit around waiting for help for three hours you don"t get much done. Also, I couldn"t help to notice that many swedish students were paired up with foreign student with rather poor knowledge of the subject. I had two in my group and one was very good and knew what to do but the other had very little knowledge and didn"t contribute anything. Can anyone get into chalmers?»
- I think it was good, and it really helped in understanding many parts of the course.»
- Great! I got a lot more understanding for the course after the project. But maybe it took too much time. Some of that time could be used to calculate the problems in the compendium instead.»
- unfair! Some bugs in the program. To much that we couldn"t have known that was not given.»
- Good»
- the project helps me to uderstand what the objective of the Experimental Design is, and also make me know the application of exp. design in Industry.»
- Funny and interesting. Important that students learn to apply the material to "real" experiments.»
- Its good to gave me a view of how to do the efficient reseach. »
- its raelly very good.»
- Really fun to be able to calculate on a "real" deal.»
- okay, wasn"t very helpful for the learning, but it was quite fun and intresting. »
- That was great...A great learning experience»
- That was the part of the course where I felt like learning most.»
- Good project. But a plan of what task to perform in the project as: Fold over, central point, error and more would be great to have as a guidline.»
- A very fun and good way to learn parts of the course»
- The project helped me understand how I should do when I take part in the famaliar practical project in the future»
- It was fun and a very good complement.»
- it was quite good, we have learnt alot in it. it is really the prictical application of the coarse.»
- It was kind of confusing for a long time but over all it was good to discuss the subject in a group and learning by solving a problem.»
- It is a great way of learning how to assess a experimental problem!!»
- Good, it helps you to understand.»

- Very poor escpecially in the optimization project.» (Very poor)
- The optimization project was a nightmare when it comes to being able to ask questions.» (Very poor)
- Don"t get me wrong the teachers was very helpful and kind but on the optimization project you could sit and wait for help 2 hours easily, it was pretty much the same on the MVDA-project. More teachers are needed in both these projects!!!» (Very poor)
- Under projekttiden var det nästan omöjligt att få hjälp. Det är tur att Jan Rodmar ofta är tillgänglig på sitt kontor:)» (Rather poor)
- The only time to ask questions was in the break or just after a lecture/practice and often there were a long que of people who wanted help. So I think there should be some time set for "getting help", it could be a "question time" or a practice where the students could sit down and calculate and ask for help if they wanted. I think this would be appreciated, at least in the later "study weeks", perhaps lv5,6 and 7?» (Rather poor)
- During beginning of optimization project, tutors were too few and one had to wait very long time for assistance.» (Rather poor)
- It would be nice to know when to find Claes in his room! We were often going there with questions but found no note of where he was or when he would get back. he is a great teacher so we really missed having the opportunity to ask questions!» (Rather good)

- Hadn"t time to read in the book nore to calculate problems until the projects were handed in because the exchange students didn"t do much on the projcets so I had to do most of it my self. » (Too high)
- projektet tog för mycket tid. » (Too high)
- Alot of lessons and high pace so there were little time to catch up.» (Too high)
- I feel I had not enough time to catch whole materials in the textbook. But its so interesting to learn experimental design. » (Too high)

- The later chapters of the book were very poorly covered, nevertheless you are expected to know just as much about them.» (more)
- Det är väldigt bra som det är nu.» (reasonable)
- Fewer topics and more calculations in the topics.» (fewer)
- EVOP, robust design and nested design are really interesting topics but were lost in the other, "bigger" topics such as ANOVA and factorial design. You had not the time to understand the smaller topics.» (fewer)
- Mixtures gicks igenom väldigt hastigt. Gjorde att det var svårt att räkna dem då de känns väldig komplicerade.» (fewer)
- A lot of the topics the teacher talks about is hard to administer to the calculations» (fewer)
- Maybe it will be better if there is another project to solve 1 or 2 problems in the textbook or others just to make sure that we can do the excercise. » (fewer)
- mvda doesn"t seem to be very useful. like, will i every use that program again? otherwise it"s useless. » (fewer)
- Two projects plus 2 exam are too much because course is just for 1 and half month and most of students take 2 courses so its very hard to manage.» (fewer)

- Yes probably. It will nice to try.» (Probably)
- gave a new way of thinking!» (Definitely)
- Add a new dimension and new perspective to my future career.» (Definitely)
- Väldigt roligt med något som man direkt känner är väldigt praktiskt och applicerbart.» (Definitely)

31. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The content of the course.»
- Claes and Jan as teatchers»
- Cleas Niklasson! and al the other people to. Best course ever!»
- ANOVA calculatons and the priject»
- Course book, the main lecturer»
- really good with project! Claes had really good lectury as well but the calcultion lecture with John Roddman did not really cover all the materials. You often had calculate problems sometimes more than a week before he gave the " structure" of the solution. Also hard to understand his english..»
- I have no idea.»
- Factorial design, optimization, robust design and multivariate.»
- The project, calculation seminars.»
- The optimization project»
- more exercise»
- Solving problems by Jan Rodmer,»
- EVOP project»
- Projektet»
- Allt "course content" borde vara samma. Definitivt ha kvar projektet.»
- The assignment»
- Nothing is holy.»
- The project.»
- The project, but maybe it shouldn"t take that much time.»
- different project in the lab.»
- keep giving Optimization project to students, it"s a good way in learning subject.»
- Optimization project.»
- optimization project+mvda project»
- The lecture hand out was a good deal of help in the calculations.»
- It was quite good just a bit heavy now.so might be a bit easy for next year »
- I think everything is rather good so we can preserved all. »
- The project, and the overall structure.»
- The book, the lectures.»

32. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- clearer tutorials and how you calculate things. Tips on how to use calculator for table calculations etc. »
- Either fewer groups or more teachers in the optimization. No report in mvda. More calculation sessions with teachers there to help.»
- More seminar on exercise and hands on training on experimental design and analysis softwares.»
- Language level in calculation classes!!!»
- Jan is good for consultation and help but his english is not always sufficient for holding practices»
- see previous question.. »
- Prolong the period for Factorial design, optimization, robust design and multivariate.»
- I suppose Rodmar is questionable for lectures, because its difficult to hear what he says. »
- More MVDA»
- Rodmar needs to talk louder and explain more. As a classmate said "Rodmar är en bromskloss i inlärningen"»
- Better explanation of problems in excercises»
- Övningsuppgifterna»
- Räkneövningarna, gå genom precis det som gjordes den tidigare föreläsningen. Se till så att tentan blir representativ för kursens innehåll.»
- Get rid of Jan, better solutions to the assignments, get out the exams earlier!»
- Gruppindelningen till projektet»
- The optimization project.»
- I would have appreciated if there were some consultation times. When I got stuck on some of the exercises it took time before I could get any help. It"s maybe not necessary to have them at the beginning at the course, but perhaps when it"s closing in to the exam. »
- I think there should be some time set for "getting help", it could be a "question time" or a practice where the students could sit down and calculate and ask for help if they wanted. I think this would be appreciated, at least in the later "study weeks", perhaps lv5,6 and 7?»
- more exercise»
- MVDA lectures, project, exam Jan should take fewer number of sessions. Also he should use PowerPoint slides more, rather than just writing the whole lecture time.»
- it would be better if there are more explaination in every calculation. »
- Some adjustments for the mechanical engineering programme. For example would be interesting how to plan a setup for covering an engine map, which is both highly non-linear and non-quadratic.»
- Hm, »
- increase mvda lectures (like optimization project one)»
- Rodmars english was really difficult to understand.»
- rodmar, can"t barley see what he writes, and can"t hear what he says in english, i wonder how mush easier it would have been if you acctuly heard him.»
- may be one exam can be changed that is MVDA»
- There should be change in the lectures with Jan Rodmar because it was impossible to understand or hear what he said when he spooke in English and it was often difficult to see what he had written on the black board.»
- »
- We should focus more on MVDA part. I think this part is important.»
- More solved examples in some form, often I spent hours just trying to figure things out because the book didn"t have enough examples.»
- Either it would be good to get more old exams with solutions earlier or to work through the solutions to the problems. They were really not acceptable. At least rewrite them because now they are really messed up. Jan Rodmar really wants to help people and get people to understand but its very hard to hear and understand what he is saying. »
- The exercises are hard too understand. »

- See question no. 1.» (?)
- The exchange students can"t write reports, I had a problem with "plagiat" in my group. Also almost no knowledge of MATLAB. In our group we had some communication problems because they were quite bad at english. The swedish group member had to do almost every thing with the reports and that effects the problem solving and reading and thereby maybe the exam results. » (Adequate)
- Btw, the exam is to big for even five hours. Cut it down!» (Adequate)
- I think this course would be very practical in my future career.» (Good)
- The best course I"ve ever taken.» (Excellent)
- It was fun and the project was a great application and made it more inspearing to learn more!» (Excellent)
- Excellent programme. Definitely a must attended course for all students. Congratulations!» (Excellent)
- Good stuff. :)» (Excellent)
- En av mina favoritkurser hittils!» (Excellent)
- This course improves my knowledge and gives me detailed information how to do or to analysize experimental data. » (Excellent)
- Its something new knowledge in chemical engineering field. Its great course but need to put an extra work to get an understanding in this course.» (Excellent)
