The week 2 assignment (A2) is design to test i) your understanding of the theory that was covered in weeks 1-2, and ii) your practical skills in implementing the techniques in Python and Excel. A2 consists of 3 parts:
A Python coding assignment that can be found in the "Credit Risk Modeling" folder below. Inside you will find more specific instructions, incl. the data set and a variable description file.
An Excel sheet that contains a small data table and 4 questions that test your understanding of Logistic Regression classifiers. You find more specific information inside the Excel sheet.
A MyCourses quiz (below) with multiple choice questions that are designed to check the answers from your coding assignment, the Excel assignment, and the theory from the week 1 and 2 slides.
DO NOT START THE QUIZ BEFORE YOU HAVE FINISHED THE CODING AND EXCEL ASSIGNMENT!
This quiz will be used to automatically grade your theory knowledge, as well as your answers to the subquestions of the Python and Excel assignment. The quiz has a time-cap of 60 minutes and you only have one attempt! Thus we recommend the following workflow before starting the quiz:
Complete all subtasks of the Credit Risk Modeling coding assignment. You won't have time to code any skipped tasks after the quiz has started.
Perform the necessary calculations that allow you to answer all 4 questions in the Excel sheet on the week 2 theory.
Review the theory lectures from week 1-2, including the slides on Decision Trees and SVMs that were presented in the Tutorial sessions.
Have your completed Python notebook AND week 2 Excel sheet open so that you can check your code for the correct answers to the some of the quiz questions (e.g. "which of the following four options is used to import data into a Pandas data frame?"
-> look into your notebook -> choose from a), b), c), d) the correct option")
Once you have submitted your answers, you will immediately be able to see which answers have been right or wrong. However, you will only be able check what would have been the correct answers after the quiz deadline has past.
Please submit the Python notebook that you have developed for the A2: Credit Risk Modelling coding task here. Your submission is not graded, but still a mandatory part of A2. Your submission will help us to understand the general level of coding knowledge and also aid in avoiding plagiarism.
