Guidelines to the Use of Computers in Statistical Instruction.
Ling, Robert F.
The introduction to this selective bibliography on the use of computers in teaching statistics provides a brief review of the role of the computer in statistics; the role of statistical packages; how statistical packages should be used in instruction; science, statistics, and data analysis; and choice and evaluation of statistical packages. Items listed in the bibliography are concerned both with instructional applications of computers and with the evaluation and comparison of statistical software. A copy of a questionnaire seeking information on available statistical software is appended, together with selected responses. These questionnaires were used to compile the data reported in the Index of Publicly Available Statistical Software, by Kohm, Ryan, and Velleman (1977). (LLS)
