Hypothesis testing, Neyman-Pearson lemma, likelihood ratio tests, power, the theory of linear models including multiple linear regression and ANOVA, the Chi-square goodness-of-fit test, Chi-square inference for contingency tables, Bayesian inference, and advanced topics including survival analysis (only if time permits).
We propose to change STAT 513 by adding the Chi-square goodness-of-fit test and Chi-square inference for contingency tables which provide students powerful tools to examine how well a statistical model fits a set of observations and to investigate whether or not a relationship truly exists between two different variables, respectively. In addition, with the coverage of inference for contingency tables, STAT 513 can qualify as a Validation by Educational Experience (VEE) course as prescribed by the Society of Actuaries. After adding these new materials, STAT 513 will cover advanced topics including survival analysis only if time permits.
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
The next Curricula and Courses Committee meeting will be held on Monday November 13 at noon in the Thomas Cooper Library, room 412. Although your attendance is not required, if you would like additional clarification on the issues outlined above, you are welcome to attend.
If the above concerns are addressed, and the proposal reaches the Curricula and Courses Committee by Nov 20, 2017 noon, it will be approved and included in those courses being recommended to the Faculty Senate for consideration at the upcoming December Faculty Senate meeting. Should it be approved at that meeting, it would be included in the Fall 2018 Bulletin. If it does not reach the committee by the stated deadline, the next Curricula and Courses review cycle will begin in January.
Please contact me if you have questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
