Grading methodology

Questions & queries

Results
There are 40 possible points here.
  • No statistics: 5 pts/ up to 10 points if discussion is good.
  • Mean information: 15 pts/ up to 20 points if discussion is good.
  • Spread information (i.e., s.d.): 25 pts/ up to 30 points if discussion is good.
  • hypothesis testing: 35 pts/ up to 40 points if discussion is good.
Discussion
There are 40 possible points here. I looked for responses related to meaning, recommendations, learning, and further questions. I read everyone's responses, and grouped like responses together while ranking them. I then assigned points from 15 to 37 depending on the relative quality and completeness of your responses.
