Whitaker, Douglas; Unfried, Alana; Bond, Marjorie – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
The Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics (SATS) is a widely used family of instruments for measuring attitude constructs in statistics education. Since the development of the SATS instruments, there has been an evolution in the understanding of validity in the field of educational measurement emphasizing validation as an on-going process. While a…

Legacy, Chelsey; Zieffler, Andrew; Fry, Elizabeth Brondos; Le, Laura – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
The influx of data and the advances in computing have led to calls to update the introductory statistics curriculum to better meet the needs of the contemporary workforce. To this end, we developed the COMputational Practices in Undergraduate TEaching of Statistics (COMPUTES) instrument, which can be used to measure the extent to which computation…

Dart, Sarah – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Statistics courses are frequently perceived by tertiary students as extremely difficult and anxiety-inducing, negatively impacting student outcomes and experiences. To address this, the present study considered worked example videos (where an instructor demonstrates the solution to a problem while narrating the process) as a blended learning…

Batista, Rita; Borba, Rute; Henriques, Ana – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
This study aims to analyse the reasoning that children and adults with the same school level use to assess and justify the fairness of games, considering aspects of probability such as randomness, sample space, and comparison of probabilities. Data collection included a Piagetian clinical interview based on games of chance. The results showed that…

Buscher, Christian – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Statistical literacy is a skill that will be required by all students, but only limited insights exist into how it can be developed in middle schools. Research is required that identifies design principles and provides didactic materials for developing statistical literacy in actual middle school classrooms, meaning classrooms in which statistics…

Saidi, Siti Shahirah; Siew, Nyet Moi – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Assessment on statistical reasoning is an area of academic interest in statistics education research in tandem with attitudes and anxiety towards statistics, since many studies report students are likely to encounter problems with statistics due to these two non-cognitive factors. In this study, 320 Tenth Grade science stream students from Sabah,…

Watson, Jane; Fitzallen, Noleine; Wright, Suzie; Kelly, Ben – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
STEM learning experiences at the school level provide both opportunities and challenges for exploring students' understanding of statistical concepts. This report focuses on data handling and informal inference embedded in a STEM context, that is, of testing, adjusting, and retesting catapults. In particular, the learning goal was for Grade 4…

Leavy, Aisling; Frischemeier, Daniel – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Recent approaches to statistics education situate the teaching and learning of statistics within cycles of statistical inquiry. Learners pose questions, plan, and collect, represent, analyse and interpret data. We focus on the first step -- posing statistical questions. Posing statistical questions is a critical step as questions inform the types…

McIntee, Sara-Emillie; Goulet-Pelletier, Jean-Christophe; Williot, Alexandre; Deck-Leger, Emma; Lalande, Daniel; Cantinotti, Michael; Cousineau, Denis – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
A vast majority of social science students experience statistics anxiety in their statistics class, a course often perceived as the most difficult one of their academic paths. The present study examines the role of attitudes towards statistics, cognitive emotion regulation strategies, and satisfaction of psychological needs in the prediction of…

Findley, Kelly – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) carry a substantial instructional role in introductory courses for many mathematics and statistics departments. As a result, many GTAs have first-hand influence on the initial statistical impressions of students from a range of disciplines. But as simultaneous learners of the discipline themselves, GTAs in…

Umugiraneza, Odette; Bansilal, Sarah; North, Delia – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
The purpose of this study is to explore the expressions of confidence by a group of South African mathematics teachers about teaching mathematics and statistics concepts from various perspectives. The participants were 75 mathematics teachers who were teaching Grades 4 to 12 in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) schools. They then were asked to express their…

Matsuo, Hiroki; Nooner, Aleise L.; Pearce, Amy R. – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
We examined students' initial and concluding attitudes toward statistics based on course delivery methods. Students enrolled in either traditional or online undergraduate statistics courses (N = 196) completed the Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics-36. At the beginning of the semester, students in traditional courses felt better about the…

Counsell, Alyssa; Rovetti, Joseph; Buchanan, Erin – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
The current study sought to evaluate the SASTSc in two samples of students taking a statistics course that incorporates statistical software. The SASTSc was given at two time points, once at the beginning of the semester and then again at the end of the semester. Our evaluation included examining competing factor analytic models, examining…

Kingston, Mary; Twohill, Aisling – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
This paper reports on a study that investigated young children's responses to a range of probabilistic tasks. A central aspect of the study was our examination of the children's use of subjective thinking. Most research that has been conducted in relation to young children's probabilistic thinking has focused on the extent to which young children…

Chance, Beth; Tintle, Nathan; Reynolds, Shea; Patel, Ajay; Chan, Katherine; Leader, Sean – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2022
Using simulation-based inference (SBI), such as randomization tests, as the primary vehicle for introducing students to the logic and scope of statistical inference has been advocated with the potential of improving student understanding of statistical inference and the statistical investigative process. Moving beyond the individual class…
