Magalhães, Marcos N.; Camargo Magalhães, Maria Cecilia – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2021
Conceptual appropriation is central to the teaching-learning and development processes. The intellectual stage is expressed by writing, verbalization and the use of the object under construction, among other means of expression. This paper discusses the conceptual appropriation by means of the creation of collaborative situations in which the…

Ubilla, Francisca M.; Vásquez, Claudia; Rojas, Francisco; Gorgorió, Núria – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2021
We consider the ability to complete an investigative cycle as an indicator of the robustness of students' statistical knowledge. From this standpoint, we analyzed the written reports of primary education student teachers when they developed an investigative cycle in a Chilean and a Spanish university. In their development of the stages of the…

González, Orlando – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2021
Many studies have reported on the influence of teachers' conceptions of variability on different aspects of their professional knowledge for teaching statistics and their classroom practices. However, research on these kind of conceptions is still scarce, particularly in Latin American countries like Venezuela. In an effort to help fill this gap,…

Corbo, Anna Regina; Sasaki, Daniel Guilherme Gomes – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2021
In general, engineering students show little interest in the activities inherent in statistics subjects. This claim may be partly explained by the competition with other subjects in the first years of undergraduate courses, or by student perceived low attractiveness of the classes. In this context, several studies indicated that methodologies…
