The course is given through recorded videos to be watched and several question-and-answer sessions. The focus is mainly on a conceptual understanding of the presented topics. The course is not rigorous.

Exam questions


The evaluation consists of an individual project and an oral exam. The project consists of some derivations as well as a programming component in R. The derivations are less involved than those in Fundamental Concepts of Statistics. In the programming component several of the algorithms discussed in the course notes have to be implemented from scratch. The oral exam takes less than ten minutes.
