Week 2 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 2 Assignment.

  • Thank you for completing the assignment on time.
  • You are writing something in the Summary field about 80% of the time. This is very good, but we are aiming for 100% of the time.
  • You answered all of the questions posed in the exercise and had a very good lab notebook.
  • I note that conclusion was more on the "metacognitive" side in the sense that you reported on the program, instead of the scientific details of the particular model you were exploring. For future reference, the purpose and conclusions should refer to the scientific question being asked, while the shared journal response is the place to record your reflection on the learning process. Be as specific as you can with the purpose.
  • A population is in HWE when allele and genotype frequencies do not change relative to each other from generation to generation. The frequencies, by definition, will always add to 100%. You mis-calculated the expected genotype frequencies for part C.
  • In your Acknowledgments section, please provide a little more detail as to the nature of the collaboration (when, who did what) and be sure to sign your Academic Honesty statement with your wiki signature.

Week 1 Feedback

Here is the feedback on your Week 1 Assignment. Thank you for completing the assignment on time (although your e-mail to me was late) I am not penalizing for late work for the Week 1 assignment, but will start to do so with Week 2. You may make up the points you missed on this assignment by completing the requested changes by the Week 3 wiki deadline, midnight Tuesday, September 20 (Monday night/Tuesday morning).

  • You completed all of the the items in the assignment, except for the following:
    • You wrote something in the Summary field for 23 out of 33 changes, or 82% of the time. This is OK, but we are aiming to write in the Summary field 100% of the time. Be aware that you've written something before you click "Save page".
    • You have only two levels of headings; for the assignment, you need three. That means you need headers with 2, "==", 3, "===", and 4, "====" sets of equals signs.
    • You created your template page, but you need to invoke it on your actual user page by using {{Courtney L. Merriam}}. This is similar to the idea that you first have to upload an image, but to see it on your page, you need to include the image syntax on the page on which you want to display the image. See me if you need further clarification.
    • Your Acknowledgments and References sections are missing from your User page. You need to include these two pages every week.
      • Your list of links looks a lot like Anu's list; because there is no Acknowledgments section, I don't know whether you worked with her directly, borrowed her style, or came up with that on your own. Please clarify.
    • You can delete all of the auto-text that OpenWetWare placed on your Talk page below my feedback.
  • I'm glad to hear that you are comfortable with and like math because there is quite a bit of that in bioinformatics!
