Choose the reports that you believe are your best work or the most interesting topic.
We will continue to use the PLAN-DO-REPORT-REFLECT format to work like statisticians preparing analyses for data-driven decisions. In Modules 3, 4, 5, and 7, you will share your reports with peers rather than submit them for direct grading. These team discussions will span two module weeks. You will submit your draft report for the module’s topic in the first module week then review the draft from one classmate in the second model week.
Review the Peer Reviewer Action List in the Statistical Report: Peer Review Process page.
After incorporating the suggestion(s) of a peer, you will submit a final version for two of the reports. In Module 7, there will be a separate assignment for submitting the report from either Module 3 or 4. In Module 9, there is another assignment for submitting the report from either Module 5 or 7. Choose the reports that you believe are your best work or the most interesting topic.
You can view and post to this discussion from either Module 3 and Module 4.
