Beemer, Joshua; Spoon, Kelly; Fan, Juanjuan; Stronach, Jeanne; Frazee, James P.; Bohonak, Andrew J.; Levine, Richard A. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2018
Estimating the efficacy of different instructional modalities, techniques, and interventions is challenging because teaching style covaries with instructor, and the typical student only takes a course once. We introduce the individualized treatment effect (ITE) from analyses of personalized medicine as a means to quantify individual student…

Hydorn, Debra L. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2018
As statisticians, we engage in a variety of activities, some of which are regularly integrated into our undergraduate courses.

Oster, Robert A.; Enders, Felicity T. – Journal of Statistics Education, 2018
It is very important for medical professionals and medical researchers to be literate in statistics. However, we have found that the degree of literacy that is required should not be identical for every statistical competency or even for every learner. We first begin by describing why the development, teaching, and assessment of statistical…
