Jonsdottir, Anna Helga; Bjornsdottir, Audbjorg; Stefansson, Gunnar – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
A repeated crossover experiment comparing learning among students handing in pen-and-paper homework (PPH) with students handing in web-based homework (WBH) has been conducted. The system used in the experiments, the tutor-web, has been used to deliver homework problems to thousands of students in mathematics and statistics over several years.…

Xu, Yonghong Jade; Meyer, Katrina A.; Morgan, Dianne D. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2009
This study used a mixed-methods approach to evaluate a hybrid teaching format that incorporated an online tutoring system, ALEKS, to address students' learning needs in a graduate-level introductory statistics course. Student performance in the hybrid course with ALEKS was found to be no different from that in a course taught in a traditional…

Enders, Felicity B.; Jenkins, Sarah; Hoverman, Verna – Journal of Statistics Education, 2010
Biostatistics is traditionally a difficult subject for students to learn. While the mathematical aspects are challenging, it can also be demanding for students to learn the exact language to use to correctly interpret statistical results. In particular, correctly interpreting the parameters from linear regression is both a vital tool and a…

Gundlach, Ellen; Richards, K. Andrew R.; Nelson, David; Levesque-Bristol, Chantal – Journal of Statistics Education, 2015
Web-augmented traditional lecture, fully online, and flipped sections, all taught by the same instructor with the same course schedule, assignments, and exams in the same semester, were compared with regards to student attitudes; statistical reasoning; performance on common exams, homework, and projects; and perceptions of the course and…

Pfannkuch, Maxine; Regan, Matt; Wild, Chris; Horton, Nicholas J. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2010
Language and the telling of data stories have fundamental roles in advancing the GAISE agenda of shifting the emphasis in statistics education from the operation of sets of procedures towards conceptual understanding and communication. In this paper we discuss some of the major issues surrounding story telling in statistics, challenge current…

Crissinger, Bryan R. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2015
Most homework sets in statistics courses are constructed so that students concentrate or "mass" their practice on a certain topic in one problem set. Distributed practice homework sets include review problems in each set so that practice on a topic is distributed across problem sets. There is a body of research that points to the…

Loux, Travis M.; Varner, Sara Emily; VanNatta, Matthew – Journal of Statistics Education, 2016
Flipped classrooms have become an interesting alternative to traditional lecture-based courses throughout the undergraduate curriculum. In this article, we compare a flipped classroom approach to the traditional lecture-based approach to teaching introductory biostatistics to first-year graduate students in public health. The traditional course…

Cooper, Linda L.; Shore, Felice S. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2010
Recognizing and interpreting variability in data lies at the heart of statistical reasoning. Since graphical displays should facilitate communication about data, statistical literacy should include an understanding of how variability in data can be gleaned from a graph. This paper identifies several types of graphs that students typically…

Carlson, Kieth A.; Winquist, Jennifer R. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2011
The study evaluates a semester-long workbook curriculum approach to teaching a college level introductory statistics course. The workbook curriculum required students to read content before and during class and then work in groups to complete problems and answer conceptual questions pertaining to the material they read. Instructors spent class…

Perrett, Jamis J. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2010
A course disk in either CD or DVD format can be very beneficial to online, hybrid, or distance courses in statistics as well as traditional on-campus courses, augmenting existing technologies like course management systems. A typical course disk may include the syllabus and course outline, calendar, instructions, lecture notes and lecture…

Ragasa, Carmelita Y. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2008
The objective of the study is to determine if there is a significant difference in the effects of the treatment and control groups on achievement as well as on attitude as measured by the posttest. A class of 38 sophomore college students in the basic statistics taught with the use of computer-assisted instruction and another class of 15 students…

Alacaci, Cengiz – Journal of Statistics Education, 2004
This study investigated the knowledge base necessary for choosing appropriate statistical techniques in applied research. In this study, we compared knowledge used by six experts and six novices in two types of statistical tasks. The tasks were: 1) comparing research scenarios from the perspective of choosing a statistical technique, and 2) direct…

Tempelaar, Dirk T.; Gijselaers, Wim H.; van der Loeff, Sybrand Schim – Journal of Statistics Education, 2006
The Statistical Reasoning Assessment or SRA is one of the first objective instruments developed to assess students' statistical reasoning. Published in 1998 (Garfield, 1998a), it became widely available after the Garfield (2003) publication. Empirical studies applying the SRA by Garfield and co-authors brought forward two intriguing puzzles: the…

Hodgess, Erin M. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2004
In teaching undergraduate time series courses, we have used a mixture of various statistical packages. We have finally been able to teach all of the applied concepts within one statistical package; R. This article describes the process that we use to conduct a thorough analysis of a time series. An example with a data set is provided. We compare…

Casleton, Emily; Beyler, Amy; Genschel, Ulrike; Wilson, Alyson – Journal of Statistics Education, 2014
Undergraduate students who have just completed an introductory statistics course often lack deep understanding of variability and enthusiasm for the field of statistics. This paper argues that by introducing the commonly underemphasized concept of measurement error, students will have a better chance of attaining both. We further present lecture…
