Ogbonnaya, Ugorji I.; Awuah, Francis K. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
There is some disparity in the quality of education among the various races and provinces in South Africa. Since the dawn of democracy in 1994, the government has tried to bridge the gap using quintile categorisation of public schools and its concomitant funding. The categorisation is based on the socioeconomic status of the community in which the…

Tobías-Lara, Maria Guadalupe; Gómez-Blancarte, Ana Luisa – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
As a contribution to the discussion on the assessment of informal inferential reasoning (IIR) and the transition from this to formal inferential reasoning (FIR), we present a review of research on how these two types of inferential reasoning have been conceptualized and assessed. Based on our review, we discuss the need to redefine the conceptions…

Crooks, Noelle M.; Bartel, Anna N.; Alibali, Martha W. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
In recent years, there have been calls for researchers to report and interpret confidence intervals (CIs) rather than relying solely on p-values. Such reforms, however, may be hindered by a general lack of understanding of CIs and how to interpret them. In this study, we assessed conceptual knowledge of CIs in undergraduate and graduate psychology…

Persson, Inger; Kraus, Katrin; Hansson, Lisbeth; Wallentin, Fan Yang – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Research on students' attitudes toward statistics has attracted many statistics instructors and statistics education researchers. In this study, we use confirmatory factor analysis to analyze data collected from an introductory statistics course using the Survey of Attitudes toward Statistics. The results suggest that the items and six factors are…

Findley, Kelly; Lyford, Alexander – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Researchers have documented many misconceptions students hold about sampling variability. This study takes a different approach--instead of identifying shortcomings, we consider the productive reasoning pieces students construct as they reason about sampling distributions. We interviewed eight undergraduate students newly enrolled in an…

LaLande, Daniel; Cantinotti, Michael; Williot, Alexandre; Gagnon, Joel; Cousineau, Denis – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
The purpose of this study was to test three pathways from achievement goals to academic performance in statistics classes. Participants were 247 undergraduate students in psychology taking an introductory course on statistics. They completed questionnaires shortly after the midterm, and their final grades were provided by their professors at the…

Strayer, Jeremy F.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Green, Lisa B.; McCormick, Nancy; McDaniel, Scott; Rowell, Ginger Holmes – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Many university statistics instructors are interested in teaching with active-learning approaches in their classrooms. In this article, we attend to active learning in three ways. First, we review how the statistics education community has addressed issues surrounding active learning implementation to date. Second, we describe how our project used…

Songsore, Emmanuel; White, Bethany J. G. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Statistics educators have long recognized the importance of empowering students with statistical thinking skills that could be applied beyond the classroom. However, there is a dearth of research on how students deem statistical topics as having practical future relevance after they complete introductory courses. Focusing on student interest in…

Huey, Maryann E.; Champion, Joe; Casey, Stephanie; Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Research-based guidelines for learning variation exist (e.g., Franklin et al., 2007; Garfield, delMas, & Chance, 2007), but little is known about how teachers plan to teach standard deviation, or how these plans align with recent recommendations. In this article, we survey lesson plans designed by inservice and preservice secondary…

Frischemeier, Daniel; Biehler, Rolf – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Group comparisons offer students opportunities to reason about many fundamental statistical concepts like center, variation, or distribution. When doing such activities using large, real datasets, technology becomes an essential tool for exploring the data. With its large variety of features and its user-friendly handling, TinkerPlots™--as a…

Forsythe, Michelle E. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Sampling is a fundamental practice of many scientific disciplines. However, K-12 students are rarely asked to think critically about sampling decisions. Because of this, open questions remain about how best to support students in this practice. This study explores the emergent sampling practice of two classes of sixth-grade students as they…

Nielson, Perpetua Lynne; Bean, Nathan William Bean; Larsen, Ross Allen Andrew – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
We examine the impact of a flipped classroom model of learning on student performance and satisfaction in a large undergraduate introductory statistics class. Two professors each taught a lecture-section and a flipped-class section. Using MANCOVA, a linear combination of final exam scores, average quiz scores, and course ratings was compared for…

Kaplan, Jennifer J.; Lyford, Alexander; Jennings, Jeremy K. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Assessment is necessary, but difficult, in statistics education. Multiple choice assessments are common, particularly for research purposes. Open-ended assessments may be more adept at revealing student understanding, but ensuring their validity can be difficult. The study presented here examines differences in student descriptions of histograms…

Wagler, Amy E.; Lesser, Lawrence M. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
The interaction between language and the learning of statistical concepts has been receiving increased attention. The Communication, Language, And Statistics Survey (CLASS) was developed in response to the need to focus on dynamics of language in light of the culturally and linguistically diverse environments of introductory statistics classrooms.…

This study examines the transferability of results from previous studies of simulation-based curriculum in introductory statistics using data from 3,500 students enrolled in an introductory statistics course at Montana State University from fall 2013 through spring 2016. During this time, four different curricula, a traditional curriculum and…
