732A90 Computational statistics


The course has the following examination items:



These are assessed through:

(i) Laboratory assignments encompassing computer-based data analysis (LAB2);

(ii) Obligatory attendance and presentation/opposition at the seminars (LAB2);

(iii) One final computer-based written examination (DAT2).

In order to pass the computer labs all the six obligatory labs, and three seminars have to be graded as passed. Furthermore, each lab group has to present or oppose at least once during the seminars. Each student has to be a member of some lab group for all the assignments. All group members have to contribute to, understand, and be able to explain all aspects of the lab work. An inappropriately done presentation or opposition can result in an additional assignment or even lab failure for the appropriate group!
If you miss a seminar, you need to submit a completely correct solution of the lab(s) discussed at this seminar, and an additional assignment will be given.
If you miss two or more seminars, the laboratory part is graded FAILED and you are forwarded to attend the same series of the seminars in the next course instance (commonly next year).
If you do not present/oppose at any of the seminars, the laboratory part is graded FAILED and you are forward to present/oppose at the seminars in the next course instance (commonly next year).

For all labs there is a deadline for first submission. If you miss the deadline for a lab solution, you must submit the solution anyway, and in this case some penalty assignments may also be given. There is an additional deadline of 21 January 2024 by which corrections to labs should be submitted. If after this further corrections will be required there is a FINAL deadline of 11 February 2024. After this date NO corrections NOR hand-ins will be accepted.

Rules for examination of computer lab assignments at IDA

You are expected to do lab assignments in group or individually, as instructed for a course. However, examination is always based on individual performance.

It is not allowed to hand in solutions copied from other students, or from elsewhere, even if you make changes to the solutions. If there is suspicion of such, or any other form of cheating, teachers are obliged to report it to the University Disciplinary Board.

Be prepared to answer questions about details in specific code and its connection to theory. You may also be asked to explain why you have chosen a specific solution. This applies to all group members.

If you foresee problems meeting a deadline, contact your teacher. You can then get some help and maybe the deadline can be set to a later date. It is always better to discuss problems, instead of, e.g., to cheat.

Any kind of academic dishonesty, such as cheating (e.g., plagiarism, use of unauthorized assistance, and use of prohibited AI-based assistants) and failure to comply with university examination rules, may result in the filing of a complaint to the University Disciplinary Board. The potential penalties include suspension, warning.

Policy for handing in computer lab assignments at IDA

For all IDA courses having computer lab assignments there will be one deadline during or at the end of the course. If you fail to make the deadline, you must retake the, possibly new, lab course the next time the course is given.

If a course deviates from this policy, information will be given on the course web pages.
