The Importance of Context in Task Selection
Weiland, Travis
Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, v39 n1 p20-25 Spr 2017
Context is at the core of any statistical investigation, yet many statistics tasks barely require students to go beyond superficial consideration of the contexts the tasks are situated in. In this article, I discuss a framework for evaluating the level of interaction with context a task requires of students and how to modify tasks to increase the levels of interaction required.
