1 Calibrated Peer Review Instructions and FAQs Why do we want you to use CPR? CPR allows you to write and critically read reports on statistical analyses. In the real world, this is how you will work with statistics. No boss is going to ask you to do #4 in the book and then check your numerical answer in the back of the book. Your boss will ask you to analyze some data and make a report at a meeting. It’s not enough to know how to calculate a statistic or to use SPSS, you also need to be able to explain what your results mean. You will also read about statistics in many different forms in your real life—in newspapers, doctors’ offices, in reports at work. You need to be a critical consumer of these statistics because not all of them mean what the author thinks they mean. One of the main goals of this course is to make you a critical reader, writer, and thinker. CPR is an excellent tool for this purpose. How do you use CPR? Go to: http://cpr.ics.purdue.edu/CPRLocal/ Log in with your Purdue username and password. The first time you use CPR, you will need to complete the tutorial and pretest. You will then be able to see your assignment and get to work. CPR has four deadlines per assignment, and three of these dates are important: the text entry deadline, the assignment end time which is the peer and self-reviews deadline, and the request for regrade deadline (one week after the assignment ends). The Writing portion of the assignment Enter your text using the HTML formatting instructions. No graphs or SPSS output can be pasted into the document. Only text. Do not use inequality symbols (< or >) because HTML reserves these for other uses. It is a good idea to write it in Word first, and then paste in a copy so that you have a backup copy in case something goes wrong. Sometimes CPR will time out if you take too long to type in the text, and then you might lose your work. BE SURE TO HIT “SUBMIT” in order to have CPR accept your work.

2 HTML Tags for formatting your text: <B>text</B> Displays the enclosed text in boldface. <I>text</I> Displays the enclosed text in italics. <SUB>text</SUB> Displays the enclosed text subscripted. <SUP>text</SUP> Displays the enclosed text superscripted. <P>text</P> Defines a paragraph. (You don’t actually type the word “text” in the middle. That’s where you write your paragraph.) If you want to include a link to a website , here is how you make that a clickable link: <a href=url>text that you want to appear as link</a> So, for example, if your url was: http://www.stat.purdue.edu/~gundlach/stat301/ and you wanted the title of the site, "STAT 301 Course Website", to appear as a link, you would type the following: <a href=http://www.stat.purdue.edu/~gundlach/stat301/>"STAT 301 Course Website"</a> and that would link you directly to the website through the title.
