I don't think I have ever used my homework for my daily blog post, but seeing that it's 11:50 pm and I'm particularly proud of my statistics homework tonight, I'm going for it. Tonight in my statistics homework, I took a reference from The Office and tied it to my discipline. The fact that I'm really proud of this suggests where I am mentally at this point in the semester.
1. Describe a research problem in your discipline that could be addressed with logistic regression.
The Party Planning Committee is really excited about planning the spring commencement ceremony and wants to get a head start on reserving chairs and a large space for the post-graduation celebration. Angela (Head of the Party Planning Committee) contacts the Office of the Registrar and asks for a number of graduating seniors for the spring semester. Exasperated, the registrar’s staff member explains to Angela that students have not even applied for graduation yet, but Angela won’t take no for an answer. The staff member decides to use binary logistic regression to give Angela an estimate. With the outcomes of “graduate in spring” and “not graduate in spring,” the registrar uses the following predictors: earned credit hours, GPA, and registered for spring classes (binary – yes/no).
