Unformatted text preview: R Feedback Instructor: Simin Seury [Please note: The following only clarifies about the common mistakes in your assignment, so that you do not do this mistakes again] ## Q1 # Stest has 3 entry, 1st one is your marks from Test-1, 2nd and 3rd entries are expected marks from Test 2 and Test 3 respectively > Stest = c(60, 70, 80) # adding all 3 marks > sum(Stest) [1] 210 # common mistakes were: not denoting the variable as Stest, not using sum command in the way it would work etc. # notice if you only used R as the way calculator works, i.e. using "+" "=" signs, etc., that was fine as well ##Q2 # assume expected marks from final exam = 80 # assume Midterms mark is 60 # assume 20% of Surprise test, ST20 is 15 # assume 30% of Surprise test, ST30 is 20 > EFIN = c(80) > MID = c(60) # Option1 20% *(Class Tests) + 30% *(Midterm) + 50% *(Final) > ST20 + 0.30*MID + 0.50*EFIN [1] 73 # Option2 30% *(Class Tests) +20% *(Midterm) + 50% *(Final) > ST30 = c(20) > ST30 + 0.20*MID + 0.50*EFIN [1] 72 ##Q3 # this questions tests if you know how to read data in R. As we have discussed and shown in class, an easy way is to read in a delimited text file with the read.table command. #R will read in a variety of delimited files. (For all the options associated with this command type ?read.table in R.) # Remember you will have to specify the location of the file yourself depending on where you have it saved # if you only copied the "hsb2... csv" command from posted Rnotes, it shows that you missed R-lectures in class and/or never tried to run R by yourself at all and/or did not understand that it is a command to read files from the internet, not to read a file saved in your C drive #here is an example how you import data: >T1 = read.table("C:/Econ2500/Data/BestG.txt", header=TRUE, na="NA") #The header option specifies whether the first line of the file contains the names of the variables ##Q4 # by default missing values are output as NA in R # you need to enter "N/A" responses either as "NA" or as missing value # you can even type "?Na" and you will get help # there was another way about reading data in excel, creating extra two columns, transferring the data into txt.file and reading in R again, to use "length" command # again, if the assignment shows that the student did not write any reasonable answer, it reflects s/he did not follow the ways suggested in lecture and/or never tried to run R and/or never even tried to understand it in Excel # another way it to create a variable Misc like following: > Misc = c(BestG=NA) > length(Misc) [1] ** # where ** are your missing values or N/A responses ##Q5 # please read lecture slides and relevant sections of the textbook #Q6 cor(Stest1, BestG) ##Q7 # use dbinom with detailed explanation ##Q8 # please see lecture slides and relevant sections of the textbook. this should a neat graph clearly showing the percentage area with proper labeling (in the exam you will loose marks if the graph is not proper) ...
