Course Plan

There are two lectures each week. In the schedule below, we call them the A-lecture (tuesdays 13.00-15.00 hours) and the B-lecture (thursdays 11.00-13.00 hours).
A lecture is denoted by its weeknumber and A or B.
In addition to the lectures, there are computer lab sessions in week 40, 42, 43 and 44 (wednesday 13.00-15.00 hours).

Computer Lab

The purpose of the computer lab is to develop some basic skills in the analysis of data with the techniques discussed in this course.

In the computer lab we use the data analysis software S-Plus 6 for Windows. We scheduled four lab sessions, in weeks 40, 42, 43 and 44.


Supplementary material for the computer lab:


The course is graded through a written exam and three practical assignments. The practical assignments are graded: not satisfactory/satisfactory/good.

With grades P[1], P[2], and P[3] for the practical assignments and grade E for the written exam, the final grade F is computed as follows:

  IF min(P[1],P[2],P[3]) = "not satisfactory"
    F := min(E, 4)
    F := E
    FOR i=1 TO 3 DO
      IF P[i]="good"
        F := F + 0.3
    F := min(F,10)

F is rounded to the nearest half point if F >= 6.0. F is rounded to the nearest whole point if F <6.0. For CKI students F is always rounded to the nearest whole point.

Written Exam

Last year's exams:

It is not allowed to consult the course notes during the exam. You may however consult one A4 sheet of paper with a summary of the course material.
