Abstract In the classroom, we traditionally visualize inferential concepts using static graphics or interactive apps. For example, there is a long history of using apps to visualize sampling distributions. The lineup protocol for visual inference is a recent development in statistical graphics that has created an opportunity to build student understanding. Lineups are created by embedding plots of observed data into a field of null (noise) plots. This arrangement facilitates comparison and helps build student intuition about the difference… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Adapting statistics education to a cognitively heterogeneous student population

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract Historically, the introductory course in statistics at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), has taken a traditional, lecture-based form. A previous study at NMBU concluded that the course structure appeared to disfavor certain cognitive or personality types, extraverts in particular. Therefore, in 2016, as an experiment, the course was restructured into a student active learning course following a flipped classroom approach. At the same time, students were encouraged to do an online screening test for cognitive preferences,… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Modeling First: Applying Learning Science to the Teaching of Introductory Statistics

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract Students learn many concepts in the introductory statistics course, but even our most successful students end up with rigid, ritualized knowledge that does not transfer easily to new situations. In this article we describe our attempt to apply theories and findings from learning science to the design of a statistics course that aims to help students build a coherent and interconnected representation of the domain. The resulting practicing connections approach provides students with repeated opportunities to practice connections… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Computer-Automated Approach for Scoring Short Essays in an Introductory Statistics Course

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT Over two semesters short essay prompts were developed for use with the Graphical Interface for Knowledge Structure (GIKS), an automated essay scoring system. Participants were students in an undergraduate-level online introductory statistics course. The GIKS compares students’ writing samples with an expert’s to produce keyword occurrence and links in common scores which can be used to construct a visual representation of an individual’s knowledge structure. Each semester, students responded to the same two essay prompts during the first and last week of the course. All responses were scored by the GIKS and two instructors. Evidence for the validity of scores obtained using the GIKS was provided through the use of correlations with instructors’ scores and final exam scores.… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Statistical Literacy as a Function of Online Versus Hybrid Course Delivery Format for an Introductory Graduate Statistics Course

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. ABSTRACT Statistical literacy refers to understanding fundamental statistical concepts. Assessment of statistical literacy can take the forms of tasks that require students to identify, translate, compute, read, and interpret data. In addition, statistical instruction can take many forms encompassing course delivery format such as face-to-face, hybrid, online, video capture, and flipped. In this study, we examined statistical literacy of graduate students using a validated assessment tool (the Comprehensive Assessment of Outcomes in Statistics; CAOS) across two increasingly popular delivery… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – From Research to Practice: Using Assessment and Early Intervention to Improve Student Success in Introductory Statistics

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT In this study we used an assessment tool evaluated in a previous study to identify students who were at-risk of not being successful in our introductory statistics course. We then required these students to attend peer tutoring, early in the semester, as an intervention. While we saw a significant increase in student success for all students in this study compared with the previous study, the at-risk students who completed the required tutoring had a significantly higher increase in success than their peers.

## tandfonline.com – Implementing Active Learning Department Wide: A Course Community for a Culture Change

tandfonline.com har udgivet en rapport under søgningen “Teacher Education Mathematics”: ABSTRACT ABSTRACT A course community (CC) was formed to facilitate the implementation of active-learning materials in the Introductory Statistics course at a large southeastern U.S. university. Instructors met every two weeks for the semester before and the semester of the implementation. The CC helped instructors improve their content knowledge and pedagogical skills. Results show improvement in teacher attitudes and in student scores. Link til kilde

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract Instructors of postsecondary classes in statistics rely heavily on visuals in their teaching, both within the classroom and in resources like textbooks, handouts, and software, but this information is often inaccessible to students who are blind or visually impaired (BVI). The unique challenges involved in adapting both pedagogy and course materials to accommodate a BVI student may provoke anxiety among instructors teaching a BVI student for the first time, and instructors may end up feeling unprepared or “reinventing… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Simulation Methods for Teaching Sampling Distributions: Should Hands-on Activities Precede the Computer?

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract Sampling distributions are fundamental to an understanding of statistical inference, yet research shows that students in introductory statistics courses tend to have multiple misconceptions of this important concept. A common instructional method used to address these misconceptions is computer simulation, often preceded by hands-on simulation activities. However, the results on computer simulation activities’ effects on student understanding of sampling distributions, and if hands-on simulation activities are necessary, are mixed. In this article, we describe an empirical intervention study… Continue Reading

## tandfonline.com – Student Perceptions of Engagement in an Introductory Statistics Course

Uncheck the box to turn MathJax off. This feature requires Javascript. Click on a formula to zoom. Abstract This article presents the results of a case study from one professor’s experience teaching an introductory statistics course. The goal of this study was to better understand student perceptions of engagement in a statistics course. Voluntary, self-reported data were collected daily for students to evaluate the engagement level of the class that day, and students also identified activities that they considered engaging. A final survey was administered at the end of the semester to provide a holistic, retrospective… Continue Reading
