MS Comprehensive Exam Saturday, March 26th, 2022 – 11:00AM – 2:00PM  Hill 114

The comprehensive exam will have three theoretical questions related to the underpinnings of Statistics as taught in 582 and 583 and three more “word problem like” applications of Statistics questions which are related to prerequisite classes (i.e. 484) and applications classes 563 and 586. Students will choose 5 of the 6 questions to answer and be graded on. We have now posted solutions to Applied and Theoretical questions from previous Masters Comprehensive Exams (which were given separately for Applied and Theoretical questions) and to the new format exam (Applied / Theoretical combined) that has been given since Fall 2019.

Students are allowed calculators, laptops, books and notes - no internet use and no cell phones out.
