The Effect of Simulation Software on Students' Attitudes and Understanding in Introductory Statistics.
Sterling, Joan; Gray, Mary W.
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, v10 n4 p51-56 Sum 1991
An experimental class in introductory statistics (n=40) using simulation software at American University was compared to a traditionally taught control group (n=36) with respect to achievement and accrued beliefs about the benefits of the simulations. Results indicate significantly higher achievement scores for the experimental class with about half judging the software as worthwhile. (15 references) (JJK)
