Leave your response as a comment on this post by the beginning of class on November 16, 2017. Remember, it only needs to be three or four sentences. For these weekly questions, I’m mainly interested in your opinions, not so much particular “facts” from the class! If you sign in using your AccessNet ID and password you won’t have to fill in the name, email and captcha fields when you leave your comment.
Answer one of the two questions below (not both):
- Name and describe a business question that you could answer using a decision tree. What data would you collect to perform the analysis? Don’t use an example we’ve covered in class.
- What advice would you give someone regarding how to select the right predictor variables for a decision tree analysis?
Here is the exercise.
And here are the supporting files. Remember, download them to your computer by right-clicking and selecting Save As…
The weekly question is taking the week off. It will return later this week.
And here is the data set for the assignment (OnTimeAirport-Jan14.csv).
Note that this file will be too big to view in RStudio. If you want to view the contents, just open it in Excel.
Also note – the “corrected” version of the assignment instructions has the same answer sheet as the original. I changed items #4 and #8 in the assignment instructions to match the answer sheet.
This assignment is due by the start of class on November 9, 2017!
