about confidence intervals, estimators and estimation of a mean. In order for an estimator to be considered good, it has to be unbiased, efficient and consistent.
Class, is it possible to have an unbiased estimator?
Class, why is it so important to estimate correct confidence intervals?
#2. Professor,
Class, statistical estimation has many uses in real life. Estimation is used in Project Management, Manufacturing, Politics, Marketing, and Systems Engineering, just to name few. Estimation theory is used as a validation tool to verify that our analytical assumptions are correct. Looking at the latest economic downturn, one cannot begin to wonder if any of the economists and business leaders looked at the applications of the theory of estimation in real life. I doubt that it would help prevent the downturn, but it could have helped in preparations for it.
Class, do you think that theory of estimation could have helped in reducing numbers of foreclosures or unemployment rates between 2009 and 2012?

Hypothesis testing is the process used to evaluate the strength of evidence from the sample and provides a framework for making determinations related to the population, i.e., it provides a method for understanding how reliably one can extrapolate observed findings in a sample under study to the larger population from which the sample was drawn (Reference: Hypothesis Testing, Means by Dr. Roger B. Davis). Whereas an estimator is good if it’s unbiased and has a small standard error

Vision is comprised of goals and beliefs to seek a certain end result. It is important to develop a personal vision in order to strive toward something; to have direction and guidance to reach a certain result. People can develop visions for personal reasons as well as career-oriented visions, or visions that help them strive in both. Personal vision gives individuals motivation and direction and can help them in their career paths and focus on doing their best everyday in the work place. Their visions can help them strive to be better and as a result push them forward in their careers.
Nancy Brinker, the sister of Susan Komen is the founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a foundation for breast cancer. Nancy’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and she promised Susan that she would do “everything in her power to end breast cancer forever” ("About us," 2013). For over 30 years, the foundation has raised billions of dollars in breast cancer research, as well as raising awareness of the disease. This has changed the fate of millions of people diagnosed with breast cancer through fundraising and research the organization provides ("About us," 2013).
This global organization is the direct result of one person’s personal vision to end this sickness for everyone. People across the world participate in fundraising campaigns that bring everyone together all for the sake of one cause. The vision to rid everyone of this cancer drives this organization everyday. One person’s vision has become an entire company’s vision statement. A great company should be comprised of multiple people working toward the same vision, wanting the same end result, and doing everything in their power to make that vision a reality.

Vision is knowing where you are going in the future and how to navigate towards that vision. Organization vision is derived from the visions of the organization’s leadership. These visions are what help drive organizations and people to reach their goals. Visions are founded on values, beliefs, customs, and traditions. Visions can either be positive or negative. Developing a personal vision can help enable a leader to develop and motivate people forward in the organization by providing a clear direction to follow with end goals in sight. “Great leaders give real thought to the values, ideas and activities they’re most passionate about–and those are the things they pursue, rather than money or prestige or options forced on them by someone else. The visions these leaders have can be–and, in fact, should be–challenging to put into action. They realize them only by setting realistic, demanding goals and then going after them relentlessly, with the help of other talented men and women who are equally committed and engaged.” (Ryan, 2009)
Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller that had a vision to address the issues of poverty housing. Their vision is, “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.” (Habitat for Humanity, n.d.) To date, their vision has helped build or repair more than 600,000 houses around the world and has helped more than 3 million people.

Competitive Positioning

Project description
Based on the articles you have been reading along with the simulations, please write a 2-page reflection paper in which you develop and build a thesis on the nature of competition and elements of competitive strategy. You may base your thesis on any one paper in the reading list which comprises the following, but must pull in arguments from at least three papers.
1.
Note on Competitive Positioning
2.
Maneuver Warfare
3.
The Right Game
4.
Getting Back to Strategy
5.
The Architecture of Simplicity
Please be sure to specifically link any three of the above readings in your argument. It is very important to keep the paper to one page; longer papers will lose points because of lack of required brevity.
All papers will have exactly five paragraphs, will be no more than one single-space page, and each will comprise three parts as follows:
Introduction (one paragraph): state as clearly as possible the theme that you want to develop, with a brief outline of the key points you’d like to convey,
Middle (three paragraphs): develop the theme with specific points and analysis, using data where feasible, and
Conclusion (one paragraph): close the paper by reiterating the main theme and the key take-away points for the reader.
I will grade the paper on five criteria: 1) organization as above, 2) smooth flow of ideas such that the paper feels integrated and seamless rather than disjointed amalgamation of thoughts, 3) clear writing to describe of the issues under consideration, 4) personal insights beyond simple description, and 5) critique of the issues presented in the articles on which the paper is based.

Self-evaluation

Self-evaluation
Introduction:
Now that you are nearing the completion of WRTG 10S, you have reached a time when it can be useful to you to reflect and evaluate your learning experience. In a fast-paced course such as this one, you have worked hard and quickly to complete your assignments according to the instructions given to you. Now is the opportunity for you to consider the experiences you had had in writing throughout this course and how those experiences might be useful to you in future courses.
This assignment asks you to reflect and consider the work you have done, how successfully you feel you have completed it, and how the skills and strategies you have learned in completing this work may help you in your future studies.
Since this assignment is reflective and self-evaluating, using “I, me, my” should be acceptable as you write this essay.
The Assignment:
This assignment calls for you to write an essay of 800-1000 words, double spaced. The essay should have the following academic essay elements:
1) a clear introduction, body, and conclusion
2) a clearly identifiable thesis statement in the introduction
3) evidence based upon your recollections and any material from the course (whether from the texts, the online resources, the course modules, the feedback to drafts, or the conference topics) that you might find relevant to mention in your discussion
Length: 800-1000 words
Due: The last day of class – the end of Week 8 – in your Assignments Folder
Possible approaches for the reflective essay in WRTG 101S:
On the following two pages, you will see descriptions of two examples of approaches you can take in your reflective essay. Each approach has three (3) parts. Be sure that you understand clearly what is expected of you. If you have questions, be sure you ask your instructor. You should choose only one of these tasks, and you may not choose any other topic.
Approach One – Self-Evaluating Your Research Essay Assignment
What You Must do:
In this essay, you will evaluate your work on the research essay assignment. Your purpose is to evaluate whether you chose wisely in selecting your topic for research writing, if you used your research successfully, and how well you believe you completed the assignment.
How You Might Do This:
Since your essay uses a traditional structure for academic writing, you could try the following technique:
1) Decide what your thesis should say and design your introduction to lead to your thesis. The thesis might begin with a phrase such as, “My research essay turned out successfully because…” or “My research assignment became problematic due to….” Your introduction can, of course, briefly describe your assignment.
2) Describe and analyze the following in the body of your essay:
a) your topic and why you chose it (this should go beyond mere interest and consider whether you thought carefully enough about the research potential/problems your topic posed);
b) how/why you made research material decisions and conducted research in the manner you did. In this section, you will want to comment on the databases you searched on in the UMUC Information and Library Services interface. You might also comment on key words on which you searched, new key words you came up with during your searches, and your experience in retrieving full-text articles.
c) how your process worked out as you completed it. In this analysis, please account for both successes and difficulties.
3) Discuss your reflection and future application in the conclusion of your essay. You will want to both reflect on what you have discussed and look towards future research assignments. You will explain how the lessons you learned from this assignment can help you correct flaws you feel you had in your process and can remind you of good practices you followed that can make future research projects successful. You should also give yourself a “grade” on, not the essay itself, but on your research process and experience.
Approach Two- Reflecting on Your WRTG 101S Experiences:
What You Must Do:
In this essay, you will evaluate your learning experience in WRTG 101S. Your purpose is to estimate where you think your writing skills were when you began the course and, by examining the work you did in WRTG 101S, determine as best you can the skills that this course helped you learn and develop.
How You Might Do This:
Since your essay uses a traditional structure for academic writing, you could try the following technique:
1) Think of your thesis as a “then and now” proposition. Your essay’s introduction can offer readers a brief look at why you took WRTG 101S and lead to a thesis statement that begins with a phrase such as “I began WRTG 101S with “X” writing skills; now I…”
2) Discuss when/where/why you learned particular skills. Remembering how you completed assignments as well as any materials you find in the classroom that you think are relevant (these can come from Course Content, conferences, the texts, the online resources, the Course Modules, the feedback you received on drafts of essays, the discussions in the classroom areas, etc.), discuss when/where/how/why you learned particular skills that helped you complete assignments successfully and increase your writing skill set.
In analyzing your acquisition of skills, it will be helpful to consider the course outcomes for WRTG 101S. They are as follows:
1. apply the writing process to develop essays using various rhetorical patterns in order to inform and persuade an audience
2. construct unified, coherent, and well-supported paragraphs using principles of persuasion and exposition
3. demonstrate accurate grammar and mechanics in writing
4. analyze source material in order to integrate valid and reliable sources using accepted documentation style
In writing this section of the essay, please be specific. You might refer to specific grammatical issues (outcome #3) and the process of developing a topic (outcome #1). Or you might refer to challenges you had in writing paragraphs (outcome #2) and how the development of the paragraphs caused you to evaluate your thesis (outcome #1). These are just some suggestions to help you develop your points that you want to make for your essay.
Do not be afraid to discuss any areas in which you felt you did not achieve as much as you would have liked to or wish you could have had more instruction or practice. This information will be very helpful to your instructor.
3) In your conclusion, consider the skills you feel you are taking away from WRTG 101S and how these skills will help you in future courses you take. Consider also areas you think you will want to continue to try to improve.
