Completing the Circle: Researchers of Practice in Statistics Education
Reid, Anna; Petocz, Peter
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v15 n3 p288-300 2003
Research in student learning can be based on a theoretical framework, observations of students' learning, the products of this learning, and students' own conceptions of the subject and of learning. In the final analysis, such investigations have a clear purpose--to improve student learning. We report on using the results of research into student learning in statistics to improve the learning environment in a university class on regression analysis. We believe this is an effective method of becoming "researchers of practice" in statistics education.
