Edwards, Thomas G.; Özgün-Koca, Asli; Barr, John – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
Boxplots are statistical representations for organizing and displaying data that are relatively easy to create with a five-number summary. However, boxplots are not as easy to understand, interpret, or connect with other statistical representations of the same data. We worked at two different schools with 259 middle school students who constructed…

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.…

Mocko, Megan; Lesser, Lawrence M.; Wagler, Amy E.; Francis, Wendy S. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
Mnemonics (memory aids) are often viewed as useful in helping students recall information, and thereby possibly reducing stress and freeing up more cognitive resources for higher-order thinking. However, there has been little research on statistics mnemonics, especially for large classes. This article reports on the results of a study conducted…

Khachatryan, Davit; Karst, Nathaniel – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
With the ease and automation of data collection and plummeting storage costs, organizations are faced with massive amounts of data that present two pressing challenges: technical analysis of the data themselves and communication of the analytics process and its products. Although a plethora of academic and practitioner literature have focused on…

Whitaker, Douglas; Jacobbe, Tim – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
Bar graphs and histograms are core statistical tools that are widely used in statistical practice and commonly taught in classrooms. Despite their importance and the instructional time devoted to them, many students demonstrate misunderstandings when asked to read and interpret bar graphs and histograms. Much of the research that has been…

Hahs-Vaughn, Debbie L.; Acquaye, Hannah; Griffith, Matthew D.; Jo, Hang; Matthews, Ken; Acharya, Parul – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
Statistical literacy refers to understanding fundamental statistical concepts. Assessment of statistical literacy can take the forms of tasks that require students to identify, translate, compute, read, and interpret data. In addition, statistical instruction can take many forms encompassing course delivery format such as face-to-face, hybrid,…

Campbell, Harlan; Hanley, James A. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
Because of their efficiency and ability to keep many other factors constant, twin studies have a special appeal for investigators. Just as with any teaching dataset, a "matched-sets" dataset used to illustrate a statistical model should be compelling, still relevant, and valid. Indeed, such a "model dataset" should meet the…

Shinaberger, Lee – Journal of Statistics Education, 2017
An instructor transformed an undergraduate business statistics course over 10 semesters from a traditional lecture course to a flipped classroom course. The researcher used a linear mixed model to explore the effectiveness of the evolution on student success as measured by exam performance. The results provide guidance to successfully implement a…

Marron, Megan M.; Wahed, Abdus S. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2016
Missing data mechanisms, methods of handling missing data, and the potential impact of missing data on study results are usually not taught until graduate school. However, the appropriate handling of missing data is fundamental to biomedical research and should be introduced earlier on in a student's education. The Summer Institute for Training in…

McGee, Monnie; Stokes, Lynne; Nadolsky, Pavel – Journal of Statistics Education, 2016
Much has been made of the flipped classroom as an approach to teaching, and its effect on student learning. The volume of material showing that the flipped classroom technique helps students better learn and better retain material is increasing at a rapid pace. Coupled with this technique is active learning in the classroom. There are many ways of…
