STAT 544 Bayesian Statistics
The major culmination of STAT 544 is the final project report. This report is a data analysis performed from a Bayesian perspective typically using either JAGS or Stan to perform the computation. This page is designed to provide guidance for the report.
To aid in providing uniform grading, I have developed a rubric for grading the report. This rubric provides 10 points for each of the following 10 categories: on-time, length, grammar, design, clarity, figure(s), table(s), math, accuracy, and Bayesian. The rubric provides information for each of these categories. The main point is that the report needs to be clear, concise, and complete with less emphasis on a perfect statistical analysis.
Previous students with high equality reports have agreed to make their reports available for future students as an example:
- A Bayesian approach to estimate time of maximal ``greenness’’ in Tropical Evergreen India
- Analysis of crash frequency using hierarchical negative binomial model with a Bayesian approach
- Investigating effect of recruiting on team success in NCAA football
- A story of comeback in ATP tennis tour
You will find that these reports follow a consistent outline with the following sections:
Although you do not need to follow this outline, providing a similar structure will help the flow of the manuscript.
