Critiquing Statistics in Student and Professional Worlds
Jones, Ryan Seth; Lehrer, Richard; Kim, Min-Joung
Cognition and Instruction, v35 n4 p317-336 2017
This article compares students' critiques within a class discussion about an invented statistic to STEM professionals' critiques from interviews to better understand how the situated meanings of a statistic are similar and different across student and professional worlds. We discuss similarities and differences in how participants constructed meaning for the statistic, and argue that disciplinary practices in schooling will always have an approximate, and somewhat indeterminate, relation to the figured worlds of professional practice.
