NRES / STAT 803 Week 8

Putting it all together

Reinforcing and reviewing all the bits we’ve done up to now.

Learning Objectives


  1. Here’s a handout that I call putting it all together. I’m not sure when the best time is give you this handout, but now seems to be a good time. In the first part, which deals with deciding what sort of models to fit, when you get to step 6 just answer NO and you’ll be good. Otherwise you will probably understand what the answer yes means in a few weeks. The 2nd part is my guidelines for model selection. These are my opinion and a fair facsimile of my usual practice; they should not be taken as absolute rules supported by independent statistical theory.

  2. Optional online help session 10-11, read, watch videos, homework.
