UNM Stat 428/528: Advanced Data Analysis II (ADA2)
Spring 2016 Syllabus is below table.
Spring 2016 schedule; Time: TR 1530-1645; Location: DSH 224; Stat 428, CRN 25445; Stat 528, CRN 25449
+ Peer mentors via UNM Stat 495/595: Statistics Education Practicum (SEP) Stat 495.— or Stat 595.—, CRN —– or —–
Learn to produce beautiful (markdown) and reproducible (knitr) reports with informative plots (ggplot2) and tables (xtable) by writing code (R, Rstudio) to answer questions using fundamental statistical methods (analysis of covariance, logistic regression, and multivariate methods), which you’ll be proud to present (poster).
See you next semester.
Saving data: If you’re using classroom computers, use Flashdrives or UNM’s OneDrive (available in LoboMail) for saving files. I recommend using a very systematic folder structure, such as a main folder called Stat428_ADA2, with subfolders called homework, in-class, reading, poster, etc.
Weekly structure (also see Assessment below)
- Pre-class (Tuesday): Reading, Video, Quiz (due before class — solutions become available Tue 3:30, after the quiz is due)
- In-class: Activities in class Tuesday submitted to UNM Learn (evaluated by TA within 1 week), Tues 5pm turn in what you have, Wed 5pm turn in completed assignment. Thursday we will start the homework in class to allow you to struggle but get questions answered before finishing on your own.
- Post-class (Thursday): Homework (crowdgrader, due following Thursday before class, feedback available until Tuesday after grading). Assignments will be common for all students.
- Post-class (Following Thursday-Tuesday): Grading (crowdgrader, following 1 week + Tuesday before class)

Description: A continuation of 427/527 that focuses on methods for analyzing multivariate data and categorical data. Topics include MANOVA, principal components, discriminant analysis, classification, factor analysis, analysis of contingency tables including log-linear models for multidimensional tables and logistic regression.
Prerequisite: Stat 427 (ADA1)
Semesters offered: Spring
Lecture: Stat 428/528.001 (CRN 25445 or 25449), TR 1530-1645, DSH 224 Video
email: “Erik B. Erhardt” <email@example.com>, please include “ADA2” in subject line
Textbook: Peter Dalgaard, “Introductory Statistics with R“, Second Edition, 2008, ISBN: 978-0-387-79053-4. The book is not required, but it will provide a backup for what you learn in class.
Office hours: SMLC 312, TR 1300-1500
Laptops running R: I encourage you to bring a laptop to class each day so you can try the R programming exercises in class. If you don’t have one, no problem, there are some laptops in class and teamwork is encouraged — sit next to someone friendly who likes to share.

Student learning outcomes
Similar as in ADA1, but at a higher level.
- Quizzes will be due each Tuesday before class. Purpose: to assess reading and video comprehension and assure you’re prepared to actively participate in class activities with minimal lecture. (About 12, 20% of final grade, the lowest few are dropped.) Most weeks plan for 1-3 hours reading and video, 30-60 minute quiz.
- In-class assignments are due each day by 5pm, submitted to UNM Learn. Purpose: to struggle and find success in class with the concepts and skills. (About 12, includes class participation, 20% of final grade, the lowest few are dropped.) Plan to start and finish in class.
- Homework (HW) assignments are assigned each Thursday and due the following Thursday, submitted to crowdgrader.org (75% of HW grade). Purpose: to apply concepts and skills to your class poster project. (About 12, 40% of final grade, the lowest few are dropped.) Most weeks plan on 2-8 hours per assignment.
- Peer grading is due by the following Tuesday after each homework is due (25% of HW grade). Purpose: to gain skill assessing the work of others, as well as see alternative strategies to answer questions. Most weeks this will take about 45 minutes to grade 5 other students’s HW.
- Poster will be developed and completed in the last weeks of the semester, and the last week we’ll have poster presentations. Purpose: to have an overarching set of questions to answer using methods learned in the course, with a deliverable you can be proud of! (1 poster and presentation, 2% preparation, 10% poster, 2% presentation, and 2% evaluations of others of final grade.) In the last couple weeks, assembling this poster may take 3-5 hours, using a template provided to you.
- Course surveys are to collect information to help facilitate the class or to encourage participation in course evaluations. Purpose: to participate in national project-based learning projects and improve course. (About 2, 4% of final grade [and a simple way to go from B+ to A].)
Final grade may include a small buffer at the discretion of the instructor. For example, final grade could be the total points earned divided by the total possible points times 0.95 for graduate students and 0.90 for undergraduate students. That is [Final Grade] = [Points Earned]/[Points possible * 0.95], so that your grade is slightly higher than you earned.
Student Attendance: If a student has more than 3 absences, I reserve the right to assign to that student a WF and drop mid-semester or assign an F at the end of the semester without warning. Students in this situation need to speak with Erik immediately.
All homework assignments in this class are electronic, submitted to crowdgrader.com for grading, except for the final poster.
- Students usually get far more feedback on their work than they would get from over-worked teaching assistants/faculty.
- Students get to see what other students are doing, and they can learn from the work of others (taking the best ideas, and leaving the rest).
- In exchange for this, they need to put in some amount of work in reviewing the work of others.
- It is important that students understand that their final grade is determined both by the quality of their work, and by the precision of the grades they give, and the helpfulness of the reviews they write.
Late assignments will not be accepted.
Rubrics guide assessment (and self-assessment) of homework, code, projects, exams, and presentations. Each assignment will have its own specific rubric.
All R code for the assignment should be included with the part of the problem it addresses (for code and output use a fixed-width font, such as Courier).
Do NOT use your R code and output as your answer to the problem, but include them to show me how you arrived at your answer. Your prose solution (in a non-fixed-width font) should be provided in addition to R output.
Collaboration and citation
For homeworks I encourage you to work together. Please discuss the data, code, and problems with one another, but do your own exploration and write up. We expect everyone to hand in substantially different homeworks, and we will enforce this under the honor code. The small benefit you might get from plagiarism is not worth the severe penalty (of lost trust, being reported to the dean, no points for the assignment, etc.).
As in life, please use any resources available to you. Projects and some homeworks will explicitly encourage you to use resources on the internet, but showing extra initiative will always be appreciated. You may find R programming tough at first, so feel free discuss your problems with other classmates or meet with or email questions to the TAs or me.
I encourage you to use the ideas of others, but make them your own, giving credit. For projects have a formal bibliography, for homework cite casually, and for code simply copy the URL in as a comment (which is doubly helpful for finding the resource again).
If you have a documented disability that will impact your work in this class, please contact me to discuss your needs. You’ll also need to register with the Accessibility Resource Center in 2021 Mesa Vista Hall (building 56) across the courtyard east from the SUB.
Peer mentor Carrie Booth <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Education grad student, course alumnus, and member of the Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society (Disability Achievement Pride) has a background in special education and is familiar with challenges surrounding learning and accessibility for students with disabilities in college. She has offered to be available, if you choose to seek her out, for assistance. I legally can’t connect her to you, but you can let her know if you have needs she’ll be particularly qualified to be helpful with. I’m glad to have her available since one of her goals through DAP is to reduce stigma of students with disabilities in academia through visibility, achievement, and community service.
Title IX statement
In an effort to meet obligations under Title IX, UNM faculty, Teaching Assistants, and Graduate Assistants are considered “responsible employees” by the Department of Education (see pg 15). This designation requires that any report of gender discrimination which includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and sexual violence made to a faculty member, TA, or GA must be reported to the Title IX Coordinator at the Office of Equal Opportunity. For more information on the campus policy regarding sexual misconduct.
We’re doing this because:
- We want you to be empowered with statistics.
- We believe everyone should get out of this course with awesome skills
- Real-time feedback promotes efficient learning
“It encourages me to engage actively with the course material and take responsibility for my learning.”
Our six recommendations include the following:
- Emphasize statistical literacy and develop statistical thinking
- Use real data
- Stress conceptual understanding, rather than mere knowledge of procedures
- Foster active learning in the classroom
- Use technology for developing conceptual understanding and analyzing data
- Use assessments to improve and evaluate student learning
Learning without thought is labor lost.
What I hear, I forget.
What I see, I remember.
What I do, I understand.
Did you receive a registration error? Send me an email with the following answers:
1. What registration error did you get (copy/paste is best)?
2. What is your UNM ID?
3. What is your Math/Stat background (that is, do you have the pre-reqs)?
If you are waitlisted and qualified and we have enough seats, I will override you into the course. Don’t worry.
Step 0: Before our first class (Tue 1/19) please read through the following and install the required software on your computer. If you don’t have a computer, there are classroom computers which will be of limited availability when the room is open.
- Create a Google account (if you don’t already have one) to use with crowdgrader.
- Sign up for crowdgrader (which uses gmail account).
- Complete a quick 5-question survey so I can link your crowdgrader gmail account with your UNM user ID for homework assignments.
- Install or upgrade R (windows or mac) then Rstudio. Videos that may be helpful:
- Install R packages, also update all packages within RStudio.
- Install Mendeley.
- Install LaTeX (for poster at end of semester).
R is currently available in these UNM Locations: DSH 141 and 143, Econ 1004, SMLC pods, and SUB IT-LoboLab Pod and IT-LoboLab Classroom.
R style matters. There is a lot of online help on R, such as at UCLA, try-r, and Google’s Intro to R video series. Usually try searching for “R [mytopic]” and you’ll get lots of results. ggplot2 plotting cookbook.
