Some Classroom Experiences in the Teaching of Empirical Model Building and Regression Analysis.
Utter, Merlin; Wilkinson, John W.
The use of the digital computer for the presentation of the topics of empirical model building and regression analysis is discussed. The author concentrates upon a description of computing exercises which are employed to provide the students with experience in model building and evaluation in a controlled situation. The types of exercises given are treated, followed by a discussion of the relative merits and dysfunctional aspects of the time-sharing and batch modes of operation. Details are presented concerning the main programs accessed by the students--the BMD multiple and stepwise regression programs, RPIREG, STEPREG, and LINREG. Finally, there is consideration of the strengths and weakness of the computer-assisted instructional (CAI) approach to these topics. (PB)
