Songsore, Emmanuel; White, Bethany J. G. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Statistics educators have long recognized the importance of empowering students with statistical thinking skills that could be applied beyond the classroom. However, there is a dearth of research on how students deem statistical topics as having practical future relevance after they complete introductory courses. Focusing on student interest in…

Huey, Maryann E.; Champion, Joe; Casey, Stephanie; Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Research-based guidelines for learning variation exist (e.g., Franklin et al., 2007; Garfield, delMas, & Chance, 2007), but little is known about how teachers plan to teach standard deviation, or how these plans align with recent recommendations. In this article, we survey lesson plans designed by inservice and preservice secondary…

Frischemeier, Daniel; Biehler, Rolf – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Group comparisons offer students opportunities to reason about many fundamental statistical concepts like center, variation, or distribution. When doing such activities using large, real datasets, technology becomes an essential tool for exploring the data. With its large variety of features and its user-friendly handling, TinkerPlots™--as a…

Forsythe, Michelle E. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Sampling is a fundamental practice of many scientific disciplines. However, K-12 students are rarely asked to think critically about sampling decisions. Because of this, open questions remain about how best to support students in this practice. This study explores the emergent sampling practice of two classes of sixth-grade students as they…

Nielson, Perpetua Lynne; Bean, Nathan William Bean; Larsen, Ross Allen Andrew – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
We examine the impact of a flipped classroom model of learning on student performance and satisfaction in a large undergraduate introductory statistics class. Two professors each taught a lecture-section and a flipped-class section. Using MANCOVA, a linear combination of final exam scores, average quiz scores, and course ratings was compared for…

Kaplan, Jennifer J.; Lyford, Alexander; Jennings, Jeremy K. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Assessment is necessary, but difficult, in statistics education. Multiple choice assessments are common, particularly for research purposes. Open-ended assessments may be more adept at revealing student understanding, but ensuring their validity can be difficult. The study presented here examines differences in student descriptions of histograms…

Wagler, Amy E.; Lesser, Lawrence M. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
The interaction between language and the learning of statistical concepts has been receiving increased attention. The Communication, Language, And Statistics Survey (CLASS) was developed in response to the need to focus on dynamics of language in light of the culturally and linguistically diverse environments of introductory statistics classrooms.…

Hldreth, Laura A.; Robison-Cox, Jim; Schmidt, Jade – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
This study examines the transferability of results from previous studies of simulation-based curriculum in introductory statistics using data from 3,500 students enrolled in an introductory statistics course at Montana State University from fall 2013 through spring 2016. During this time, four different curricula, a traditional curriculum and…

Green, Jennifer L.; Smith, Wendy M.; Kerby, April T.; Blankenship, Erin E.; Schmid, Kendra K.; Carlson, Mary Alice – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
In this study, we examined how in-service middle-level mathematics teachers used statistics in their own classroom research. Using an embedded single-case design, we analyzed a purposefully selected sample of nine teachers' classroom research papers, identifying several themes within each phase of the statistical problem solving process to…

Isoda, Masami; Chitmun, Somchai; Gonzalez, Orlando – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
In this article, the conceptions of variability held by samples of Japanese and Thai senior high school mathematics teachers were identified, based on the framework proposed by Shaughnessy (2007), using a comparative survey study. From contrasting the results of the two groups, relative tendencies of insufficient statistical knowledge for…

Zimmerman, Whitney Alicia; Austin, Stefanie R. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
An abbreviated form of the Statistics Anxiety Rating Scale (STARS) was administered to online and face-to-face introductory statistics students. Subscale scores were used to predict final exam grades and successful course completion. In predicting final exam scores, self-concept, and worth of statistics were found to be statistically significant…

Doehler, Kirsten – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
This paper explores the implementation of service-learning projects in a survey sampling statistics course. In these projects, students worked with a community partner to develop and administer a survey, analyze the data collected, and present the results. A study with 23 participants was conducted to investigate whether students' attitudes…

Case, Catherine; Jacobbe, Tim – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Although hypothesis testing is ubiquitous in data analysis, research suggests it is commonly misunderstood. Simulation-based inference methods have potential to make student thinking visible, thus providing a valuable lens to analyze developing conceptions about inference. This paper identifies difficulties made visible through simulation-based…

Rabin, Laura; Fink, Lauren; Krishnan, Anjali; Fogel, Joshua; Berman, Lorin; Bergdoll, Rose – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Mathematical competency is related to performance in introductory statistics courses and may be a roadblock to successful course completion. We developed a new measure (Math Assessment for College Students, MACS) of basic mathematics skills that improves upon measures previously used in undergraduate settings. The MACS is freely available and…

Lai, Betty S.; Livings, Michelle S.; D'Amico, Michelle P.; Hayat, Matthew J.; Williams, Jeremiah – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
A growth mindset emphasizes the malleability of intelligence. The purpose of this pilot study was to implement and evaluate a growth mindset intervention for graduate students. Participants were twenty graduate students recruited from an introductory public health biostatistics class. Students were assessed three times during one semester. At each…
