|Form of Assessment
Class sessions are mostly organized along the methods in the standard tool kit of empirical research. We start off each topic with a brief and easy overview of the method. Afterwards, a student will summarize a paper using the respective method and we will discuss in class. For each method, we identify a set of core papers which use the respective method, present examples of a state-of-the art application and are relevant topic wise. These core papers are summarized and discussed in class. We expect all students to read the core papers that we cover in class.
In addition, students learn basic knowledge of the statistical software package “R” and we will talk about “How to survive in academia”. Toward the end of the term, students present their summer project. Summer projects are conducted over the summer and presented during the beginning of the subsequent fall term.
Grading will be based on:
