Presented by:

Ivan Ramler, St. Lawrence University

02:30pm - 03:00pm Eastern Standard Time, May 25th, 2010


This webinar will discuss an undergraduate Mathematical Statistics course project based on the popular video game Guitar Hero. The project included:

  1. Developing an estimator to address the research objective "Are notes missed at random?"
  2. Learning bootstrapping techniques and R programming skills to conduct hypothesis tests and
  3. Evaluating the quality of the estimator(s) under certain sets of scenarios.
