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
