Baumer, Benjamin S.; Bray, Andrew P.; Çetinkaya-Rundel, Mine; Hardin, Johanna S. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2020
We designed a sequence of courses for the DataCamp online learning platform that approximates the content of a typical introductory statistics course. We discuss the design and implementation of these courses and illustrate how they can be successfully integrated into a brick-and-mortar class. We reflect on the process of creating content for…

Hancock, Stacey A.; Rummerfield, Wendy – Journal of Statistics Education, 2020
Sampling distributions are fundamental to an understanding of statistical inference, yet research shows that students in introductory statistics courses tend to have multiple misconceptions of this important concept. A common instructional method used to address these misconceptions is computer simulation, often preceded by hands-on simulation…
