The intent of the participation assessment is to give students practice addressing many questions that each have narrow scope. This is as opposed to the homework, where you work on fewer questions with larger scope.
There are two goals:
Your participation component will be evaluated by:
Discussionrepositories – with preference given to
For participation, we never evaluate correctness! Only whether or not the attempt was there.
Will you be missing any classes for some legitimate reason (such as academic, health, or other)? It’s okay! Just let me know ahead of time. We won’t be looking for a commit timestamp for that day, but we do expect you to show at least some engagement with the material (for example, trying exercises in the worksheet – as much as you feel is appropriate).
Now that STAT 545 uses GitHub Classroom, STAT 545 will no longer be using one repository to hold all the work of a student. To evaluate your participation through work on in-class activities, I think it’s most appropriate that we use a repository that you create under your own account.
If you’ve already created a repository in Class Meeting 02 (probably called
STAT545_md_explorer), rename and use that one:
If you did not make said repository:
cm003, etc… more on folders in GitHub in cm004.
You do not have to wait until the end of the course to do this! You are encouraged to do this as soon as you can.
To gain participation marks, you’ll need to submit a link to your
STAT545_participation repository on canvas.
You can use your STAT 545 participation repo for STAT 547M.
