Question
The director of the MBA program at Salterdine University wants to develop a procedure to determine which applicants to admit to the MBA program. The director believes that an applicant’s undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and score on the GMAT exam are helpful in predicting which applicants will be good students. To assist in this endeavor, the director asked a committee of faculty members to classify 70 of the recent students in the MBA program into two groups: (1) good students and (2) weak students. The file MBAStudents.xlsm summarizes these ratings, along with the GPA and GMAT scores for 70 students.
Use Minitab or any other statistics software that you have available to answer the following questions.
Minitab does not automatically provide the accuracy percentage so you have to calculate it. First, you need to obtain the predicted “event probabilities”. This is done by selecting “Storage” on the binary logistic regression box and then checking “Event Probability”. To determine if an observation was classified in the correct group you need to compare the probability (column EPRO1) and the Rating columns. If the probability is less than 0.5, it means that our model predicts that the observation belongs to group 1. If the probability is greater than 0.5, it means that our model predicts that the observation belongs to group 2. This way you will determine the number and percentage of misclassified observations on each group. You need to complete the following table:

True Group 

Put into Group 
1 
2 
1 


2 


Total N 
35 
35 
N correct 


Proportion 


Note that this is the same table that you automatically obtain in the discriminant analysis report, so by having the table of each procedure, we can determine which one is more accurate which is required on part d.
Here is part of Minitab’s logistic regression report:
Logistic Regression Table
Odds 95% CI
Predictor Coef SE Coef Z P Ratio Lower Upper
Constant 19.5430 4.73543 4.13 0.000
GPA 3.03903 0.880393 3.45 0.001 0.05 0.01 0.27
GMAT 0.0189050 0.0062161 3.04 0.002 0.98 0.97 0.99
The coefficients that you are required to interpret are those contained in the “Coef” column. Basically, you need to determine how the variables GPA and GMAT affect the odds of being in the groups. Week 8 folder contains “logistic regression slides” which provide a good explanation on how to interpret the coefficients. In particular, look at slides 22 and 23.
Summary
This question belongs to statistics and discusses about logistic regression and discriminant analysis.

I totally loved getting helped from a Melbourne based tutor via HwA as I believe someone from UK or the States could have understood the specifications required for my assignment. It is a marvellous website and I encourage all my fellow students from Melbourne to avail help from HwA as and when they need.
The accounting assignment due for my term end evaluation had to include data and examples from Wellington businesses. So when I mentioned this special requirement of mine to the customer care executives at HelpWithAssignment they immediately paired me with an accounting assignment expert who is from Wellington and has himself studied from the Victoria University of Wellington. Needless to say I topped the class and the professor was very impressed by the quality of the assignment.
I always found that circuit design assignments are very mind boggling and for that reason I often got low scores in the past. However, one senior of mine suggested that I take help from HwA as he got much benefit from them. I was a bit sceptical to be honest, at the beginning but eventually when I trusted them with one assignment, the feedback was brilliant. My grades spiked up and since then I take their help on a regular basis.
I am very particular about deadlines and I needed my stock valuation assignment well before deadline to go through the essay and make sure that it was exactly according to the guidelines that I had given. Most online assignment help providers that I have used had failed in this very step, but the finance assignment expert at HwA delivered the fully completed assignment well before the deadline. The best part was that when I went through the finished assignment I was left with no doubts about the assignment question.
It is important to have a constant guide while you do your dissertation as the lack of constant help often leaves you all the more bewildered. The New Zealand dissertation expert who helped me with my assignment was available on a constant basis and she helped me get a fantastic grade.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
