How does this scream Simpson's Paradox?

I would have expected it to scream "cognitive bias" or something similar.

It's up to each actuary to determine what is relevant for them and the time spent on it. Be prepared to defend your decisions if you are audited.

Thanks! :clap:

I had a great experience on the Predictive Analytics/Futurism section council, and have a belief that the Health section has similar magic.

Yeah, big fan of the new appraisal system and also like the search functionality (which I guess has been there for a while and I just didn't realize it).

The two items aren't really comparable - one measures a very specific subset of skills at a deeper level, and the other measures a broader set of learning.

I'm sorry you found my quip snarky - I don't usually quip at all so I guess I'm out of practice. Details are important to me; these sorts of things have a "canary in a coalmine" effect when I'm...

It's not easy, but it's fun if you like learning.
