Aim of the course -

To explain basics of regression models.

Course completion requirements -

The subject is finalized by a course credit and exam. To be able to take exam, it is necessary to obtain a course credit first.

Course credit requirements:

  • Presence in class: at least 75%.
  • Homework assignment: Each student needs to submit, within the pre-specified deadline, a solution to the homework assignment. The solution must be graded as "acceptable" by the lecturer.

The nature of these requirements precludes any possibility of additional attempts to obtain the exercise class credit.

Teaching methods -

Lecture + exercises.

Last update: Zichová Jitka, RNDr., Dr. (10.05.2021)
Requirements to the exam -

Exam is oral and it is composed of two parts:

  • questions corresponding to topics covered by lecture and exercise classes;
  • discussions about the written course credit homework.

Problems assigned during exam are based on topics presented during lectures and also correspond to topics covered by exercise classes. Assigned problems correspond to the syllabus into extent covered by lectures.

Exam grade will be based on point evaluation of the written course credit homework and evaluation of the oral part.
