Life lesson

Event: I got 100% on my second stats midterm.

Life lesson: Jeremy is harder to convince of my stats knowledge than the TA who graded my test.

Good job. I'll forward all the stats questions people send me to you.

What you don't know is that your test's raw score was 76%, but the standard error was large, so they couldn't say with 95% confidence that you didn't get a 100%. (The 95% confidence interval stretched from 49% to 103%.)
