Reston, Enriqueta; Krishnan, Saras; Idris, Noraini
Statistics Education Research Journal, v13 n2 p218-231 Nov 2014
This paper presents a comparative analysis of statistics education research in Malaysia and the Philippines by modes of dissemination, research areas, and trends. An electronic search for published research papers in the area of statistics education from 2000-2012 yielded 20 for Malaysia and 19 for the Philippines. Analysis of these papers showed that most were primarily empirical research published in national refereed journals or in conference proceedings. Statistics education research in Malaysia has focused on integration of technology and on affective aspects of statistics learning. In the Philippines, studies have investigated university-level statistics pedagogy, statistics academic programs and teachers' professional development. Implications for future statistics education research and teaching practice in these two countries are identified.
