Reston, Enriqueta D.; Poliquit, Elmer S. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
This paper addresses a critical component of the infrastructure necessary for professional development toward more effective teaching and learning of research and statistical methods. In particular, an interdisciplinary in-service model is proposed, which has the potential to better prepare educators to address institution-specific needs amidst…

Frischemeier, Daniel – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
Since many decisions in politics, economics, and social sciences are based on statistics, statistical literacy is a key component for an active citizen. Statistical skills and statistical reasoning can already be enhanced in primary school. Therefore, not only in Germany, statistics is an element of the primary-school curriculum, which usually…

Intepe, Gizem; Shearman, Don – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
Students in many Australian universities start their studies mathematically underprepared as there are no prerequisites for mathematics, and assumed knowledge requirements are often overlooked. Many degrees include at least one statistics subject for which students require a reasonable level of mathematical ability to successfully complete.…

Ponomarenko, Alexey N.; Svirina, Ekaterina M. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
Typically, training in Russia for professionals includes school, university, and postgraduate education. People make their choice regarding university or job after school, and they choose jobs after university. These are very sensitive matters. Help in making the right choice is a real asset. The Russian Association of Statisticians (RASt) is an…

Fernández, María Soledad; Pomilio, Carlos; Cueto, Gerardo; Filloy, Julieta; Gonzalez-Arzac, Adelia; Lois-Milevicich, Jimena; Pérez, Adriana – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
Though statistics is covered in secondary-school curricula, it is usually limited to few lessons and mainly taught in a procedural approach. There seems to be a gap between the education of mathematics teachers and the demands on their practice. Learning statistics from a mathematical perspective does not qualify to teach the subject properly.…

Jones, Rhys Christopher – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2020
The Welsh Baccalaureate qualification has been adopted by most secondary schools within Wales. In years 12 and 13 (ages 16-18), 50% of the qualification requires students to collect primary data and also conduct secondary data analysis to write a 5000 word investigative report. To help teachers develop effective teaching strategies and resources,…

Ogbonnaya, Ugorji I.; Awuah, Francis K. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
There is some disparity in the quality of education among the various races and provinces in South Africa. Since the dawn of democracy in 1994, the government has tried to bridge the gap using quintile categorisation of public schools and its concomitant funding. The categorisation is based on the socioeconomic status of the community in which the…

Tobías-Lara, Maria Guadalupe; Gómez-Blancarte, Ana Luisa – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
As a contribution to the discussion on the assessment of informal inferential reasoning (IIR) and the transition from this to formal inferential reasoning (FIR), we present a review of research on how these two types of inferential reasoning have been conceptualized and assessed. Based on our review, we discuss the need to redefine the conceptions…

Crooks, Noelle M.; Bartel, Anna N.; Alibali, Martha W. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
In recent years, there have been calls for researchers to report and interpret confidence intervals (CIs) rather than relying solely on p-values. Such reforms, however, may be hindered by a general lack of understanding of CIs and how to interpret them. In this study, we assessed conceptual knowledge of CIs in undergraduate and graduate psychology…

Persson, Inger; Kraus, Katrin; Hansson, Lisbeth; Wallentin, Fan Yang – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Research on students' attitudes toward statistics has attracted many statistics instructors and statistics education researchers. In this study, we use confirmatory factor analysis to analyze data collected from an introductory statistics course using the Survey of Attitudes toward Statistics. The results suggest that the items and six factors are…

Findley, Kelly; Lyford, Alexander – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Researchers have documented many misconceptions students hold about sampling variability. This study takes a different approach--instead of identifying shortcomings, we consider the productive reasoning pieces students construct as they reason about sampling distributions. We interviewed eight undergraduate students newly enrolled in an…

LaLande, Daniel; Cantinotti, Michael; Williot, Alexandre; Gagnon, Joel; Cousineau, Denis – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
The purpose of this study was to test three pathways from achievement goals to academic performance in statistics classes. Participants were 247 undergraduate students in psychology taking an introductory course on statistics. They completed questionnaires shortly after the midterm, and their final grades were provided by their professors at the…

Strayer, Jeremy F.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Green, Lisa B.; McCormick, Nancy; McDaniel, Scott; Rowell, Ginger Holmes – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Many university statistics instructors are interested in teaching with active-learning approaches in their classrooms. In this article, we attend to active learning in three ways. First, we review how the statistics education community has addressed issues surrounding active learning implementation to date. Second, we describe how our project used…

Xu, Chao; Schau, Candace – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
We use ordinal confirmatory factor analysis techniques to investigate the six-factor structure of the Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics (SATS-36) and to estimate method effects associated with its items and factors. We extend previous confirmatory research to include posttest, as well as pretest, item-level data. We also investigate method…

Theobold, Allison; Hancock, Stacey – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2019
Modern environmental science research increasingly requires computational ability to apply statistics to environmental science problems, but graduate students in these scientific fields typically lack these integral skills. Many scientific graduate degree programs expect students to acquire these computational skills in an applied statistics…
