Logistic Regression Interview Questions – Set 2

logistic regression interview questions

This page lists down the practice tests / interview questions and answers for Logistic regression in machine learning. Those wanting to test their machine learning knowledge in relation with logistic regression would find these practice tests very useful. The goal for these practice tests is to help you check your knowledge in logistic regression machine learning models from time-to-time. More importantly, when you are preparing for interviews, these practice tests are intended to be handy enough. Those going for freshers / intern interviews in the area of machine learning would also find these practice tests / interview questions to be very helpful.

This test primarily focus on following concepts related with logistic regression:

  • Types of logistic regression (Binomial, Multinomial, Ordinal)
  • Logistic function, logit transformation
  • Evaluation of logistic regression (AIC, Deviance calculations)

Other tests in this series includes some of the following:

Logistic Regression Concepts (Brushing up)

  • Types of logistic regression model (Binomial, multinomial, ordinal)
  • Logistic regression model is evaluated using some of the following:
    • AIC
    • Deviance (Null and Residual)
    • ROC curve
    • Hosmer Lemeshow test
    • Psedu R-squared (McFadden R-Squared, Likelihood ration R-squared, Cox and snell R-squared etc)
  • Lower the value of AIC, better fitted is the model
