Statistics 512: Final Project Due Friday, December 10, 2010 Use the computer science data csdata.dat that we have been discussing in class. The variables are: id , a numerical identifier for each student; GPA , the grade point average after three semesters; HSM ; HSS ; HSE ; SATM ; SATV , which were all explained in class; and GENDER , coded as 1 for men and 2 for women. 1. In this exercise you will illustrate some of the ideas described in Chapter 7 of the text related to the extra sums of squares. (a) Create a new variable called SAT which equals SATM + SATV and run the following two regressions: i. predict GPA using HSM , HSS , and HSE ; ii. predict GPA using SAT , HSM , HSS , and HSE . Calculate the extra sum of squares for the comparison of these two analyses. Use it to construct the F -statistic – in other words, the general linear test statistic – for testing the null hypothesis that the coefficient of the SAT variable is zero in the model with all four predictors. What are the degrees of freedom for this test statistic?

### 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.
