Statistics Pedagogy Lab Group
The Teaching Statistics group engages in a combination of research, pedagogy, and classroom training. Members are interested in updating and modernizing curriculum and assessment, pedagogical philosophy and development, best classroom practices, student engagement, and outreach to a diverse community.
Current work includes:
- Conducting think-aloud interview studies to design more effective assessment questions for statistical misconceptions, and to understand how students learn statistics
- Understanding how students learn to write in statistics courses, how statistical writing differs from other genres, and how best to develop statistical writing skills
- Building interactive tools for teaching statistics and for students to analyze data, including the Integrated Statistics Learning Environment
