About the Course

This course will provide a set of foundational statistical modeling tools for data science. In particular, students will be introduced to methods, theory, and applications of linear statistical models, covering the topics of parameter estimation, residual diagnostics, goodness of fit, and various strategies for variable selection and model comparison. Attention will also be given to the misuse of statistical models and ethical implications of such misuse. This course can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Data Science (MS-DS) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The MS-DS is an interdisciplinary degree that brings together faculty from CU Boulder’s departments of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Science, and others. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the MS-DS is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience in computer science, information science, mathematics, and statistics.

Thorough review of simple linear regression and multiple linear regression with a good bit of well-explained theory and challenging assignments. Highly recommended for those getting their feet wet in regression and for those already familiar with the techniques but need to brush up on the theoretical aspects of it. One of the better courses on Coursera.

This course is the best out there for those who want to learn R for regression and the theoretical foundation of regression. Professor Zaharatos explains the meth background needed in a excellent way. My knoweldge of math limited yet I was able to pass most of the assignments. The assignments are very well thought. Some minor problems with the autograded assignments but most of them are manageable after sometime. I highly recommend that course for everyone who making at their mid-way to statistics.

It is a course with some difficulty specially the auto graded assignments, but if you are really interested to learn about the statistics behind linear regression you will find this course excellent.

Something i did not like is the peer review assignments sometimes they took to much time to be reviewed.

A lot of work with several peer reviews, but it get you into R for Regression Analysis. Well laid out course. need knowledge of Linear algrebra for this course.

The best course I ever had in statistics

Great instructor! He explained the material very well. I didn't get much out of the peer review assignments. I would prefer more code work or the peer review could be on explaining certain parts of the code output like in the Machine Learning classes.

Content and intent is great. The autograder for assignments is frustrating.

Peer reviews appear to be unreliably completable. After performing all the work I have not found any way to get 2 of 6 peer reviews completed so I could complete the course. I am providing 1 star because the lack of ability to receive credit for valid work seems to be "table stakes". It is a minimum bar of performance. Further, this course is a valuable component in the Boulder masters program. For a ~ $20K it seems that Boulder may be exploiting students.
