- The content was very good, but sometimes hard to find my way in site.» (Rather well)
- Exam solutions has to be posted in the course home page after the examination held. This will be very much helpful.» (Rather well)
- I think that should be mentioned which were the parts of the book (theory) that should be prepared for the exam. I was not attending the lectures this year (2011) so I found it kind of difficult to figure out which parts are included and which not only by using the teacher"s notes.» (Rather well)

- Literally started studying 12 hours before the exam, got a 4. » (Not at all demanding)
- Very much to read» (Quite demanding)
- We didn"t have mid quarter exam or homework to give back, so wasn"t demanding during the period. But at the end had a huge amount of work for the final exam.» (Demanding)

poorly written»0 0%
ok»7 63%
well written»4 36%
No opinion»1

Genomsnitt: 2.36

- The book is a good book,because covers almost all the topics of statistics. Given that, the book lacks of details which would help understanding the theory. Someone needs to read other books as well to understand and get deep knowledge.» (ok)

9. How useful were the lecture notes?

did not use them»1 8%
useless»0 0%
somewhat useful»1 8%
good to have them»6 50%
very useful»4 33%

Genomsnitt: 4

- Pretty good when it came to putting together the formulas for the exam» (good to have them)
- The lecture notes have the potential to actually truly support the learning, currently they are rather limited and almost useless if you do not have access to the textbook. The lecture notes should cover the Lectures, not the reading material. The reading material covers itself, and if needed a shorter summary of the book could be created.» (good to have them)
- Very well written, and almost made book redundant. It was very well organized into different chapters, had very good examples and covered all necessary topics.» (very useful)

10. On average, how would you rate the amount of material covered in one lecture?

12 svarande

Boringly little»0 0%
OK but more could be added»3 25%
Just about right on average»6 50%
OK but some material could be removed»2 16%

Genomsnitt: 3.08

- More deep explanations to why things are as they are, not only how it is..» (OK but more could be added)
- More would be more demanding, but a more rigorous approach to what was already covered would be better.» (OK but more could be added)
- I would say that was a lot of material, but still was interesting material. » (Just about right on average)
- A subset of the chosen material would improve the understanding. Maybe focus on 2-3 lab exercises with equal amounts of work on some of the material for 30% of the grade and leave the other topics for the exam.» (OK but some material could be removed)

11. On average, how would you rate the amount of material covered in one exercise class?

Genomsnitt: 2.62

- Working with harder exercises would be appreciated. The theoretical material covered was really good, but it could have taken up half the time of what it did, leaving room for more challenging tasks.» (OK but more could be added)

- Too slow and too easy. Only went to one though.» (Poor)
- Could be more structured, and with better lecture notes they would be easier and better to follow.» (Fair)
- Maybe use more examples.» (Good)

- Too slow and too easy. Only went to one though.» (?)
- see above.» (Poor)
- The TA is simply copying the solved answers on the board. Anyway he posts the solutions in home page. Better he try to discuss the problem statements and approaches on board. this will be very much helpful.» (Good)

14. What did you think about the bonus assignment?

- Fun and a pretty open task.»
- good»
- Excellent.»
- A good assignment that tried to capture the problems and considerations that need to be made when dealing with statistical inferencial work.»
- An interesting task that at least I learned a lot from!»
- It is really nice to have assignment and the explanation given at proper timing.»
- Would have been good to receive an e-mail about the deadline.»
- Did not decide to do it.»
- Didn"t do it.»

15. Which parts of the course did you find difficult?

- The beginning.»
- The shear amount of material. Too much to know everything well, which should be the objective of such a practically oriented mathematics course. Better to focus on the "core concepts" like ANOVA and maybe not cover two-way different sample sizes, since IF this is the case, this information can be found.»
- Chapter 8 & 9. Theoretically we can do the problems with the formulas given. But very difficult to analyse the problem statements. Please add some more information to analyse the problem statements in detail.»
- The latest chapters.»
- The part that dealed with bayesian statistics.»

16. What about the availability of the teacher if you needed help?

adequate»4 33%
good»4 33%
excellent»2 16%

Genomsnitt: 3.5

- As is the case usually the course focuses heavily on the later chapters. In a different type of course this is ok. But in this course the topics are somewhat disjoint and a good understanding of the basics was not reflected in the exam.» (fair)
- I guess it did. It was surprisingly easy, even compared to previous exams. And what happened to Bayesian inference?» (adequate)

18. What is your general impression of the course?

12 svarande

Poor»1 8%

Good»7 58%
Excellent»1 8%

Genomsnitt: 3.5

- Too easy.» (Poor)
- Thanks to Serik and TA.» (Good)
- The overall impression is that it is a good course. Interesting theory and not boring lectures.» (Good)

19. Other comments/suggestions for how the course can be improved?

- Recommend some excercises about Bayesian statistics.»
- The lecture notes, and a summary of the book/statistical tests that are important for the purpose of the course.»
- Please explain the example problem statements and add why we are going to this approach rather than other way around. This will help us to improve the concepts.»
- Interesting course, but should be more work to give back during the period, like a mid quarter exam.»
- I have one comment regarding the grading, I want to mention that up to this moment I have not got the result of the exam, so I am not biased or anything. I rememeber last year that the teacher said about being a bit more strict in the correction for the GU students because of the way that we get the grades (G,VG) while the Chalmer student have (1-5), but the GU student do not have the right to have an other examination for improving the grade, while the Chalmer students have that right!»
- The material covered was very much appreciated and is probably the least everyone should know about the subject, but the questions on the exam and during exercises could be much more demanding. This course was probably the second easiest so far. That"s too bad considering all the material covered was new. This could have been a great course but it feels like just another mandatory course aimed towards people not interested in statistical inference. It could have been replaced with a more demanding course for those enrolled in MPENM with the mathematical statistics track.»
