Optional R crash course

December 17, 2014

For anybody who does not have experience coding in R, I'll be holding an extra (optional) section during the first week of classes where I'll give a crash course. If R is totally new to you, I'd suggest finding some time to work through the tutorials that I've put together here: The crash course I do at the extra section will be based on those tutorials, but will be significantly shorter.

Week 4 reading assignments - 2/24

February 24, 2014

The readings for next week are:

Also, don't forget to submit your replication paper topics to Canvas by Wednesday at 6pm. You should also begin to try to get the data for the paper you're planning to replicate, as Gary discussed at the beginning of lecture today.

Week 3 readings and announcements

February 10, 2014

The readings for this week come from UPM. Now that Gary has gone through theories of inference, you should reread chapter 2. Also, read chapter 2 so that you can familiarize yourself with the likelihood framework.

There's no lecture next week (Monday Feb. 17). But we will be having section on Feb 12 and 19.

The new (and final) study groups will be posted in the next couple days. Pay attention to Canvas for this.

Problem set 3 will be posted on Wednesday and will be due next week.
