MS&E 226 Solutions for In-Class Midterm Examination “Small” Data Question 1: D In leave-one-out CV, we measure the error at each training point from the model fitted on the remaining observations; i.e. we measure the error 5000 times in total. Question 2: A The mis-calibration means that the Y values in Michael’s training set will be twice as large as those in John’s. ˆ β is linear in Y and any predicted value is linear in ˆ β , so this will be twice as large also. Question 3: A Your estimator is simply ˆ Y = f ( X ) which has no bias or variance (there is still an irreducible error of τ 2 ). Question 4: B Since Alice and Bob use the same modeling approach, they will obtain the same model except with different values of ˆ β . Using the other half of the data set as a test set enables them to decide which of the two values for β they get predicts better. Still, that is a less efficient procedure to estimate β than just using the OLS solution based on the whole data set.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
