Albarracín, Lluís; Aymerich, Àngels; Gorgorió, Núria

This article reports on the solutions of a group of 22 students, aged 15/16 years old, when facing a statistical modelling activity. They were given the salary lists of 5 companies and were asked what could be said about their salary structure; no hint was given. The results show that students not only used a wide range of data concepts and procedures but also developed their own criteria to measure dispersion.
