When using midterm exam scores to predict a student's final grade in a class, the student would prefer to have a

▸ residual equal to zero, because that means the student's final grade is exactly what we would predict with the model.

▸ positive residual, because that means the student's final grade is higher than we would predict with the model.

▸ negative residual, because that means the student's final grade is higher than we would predict with the model.

▸ negative residual, because that means the student's final grade is lower than we would predict with the model.

▸ positive residual, because that means the student's final grade is lower than we would predict with the model.
