The April caption contest cartoon is shown here. The judges found the winning caption to be “Collecting data requires knowing what sample size one can feasibly handle!” written by retired AP Statistics teacher Jodene Kissler. Jodene’s caption can be used in discussing how choosing an appropriate sample size must balance budget and logistics along with statistical power. An honorable mention this month goes to the caption: “The Negative Correlation Moving Company had trouble holding on to their shorter employees,” an anonymous submission that can be used to discuss the difference between positive and negative associations.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a caption and congratulations to our winners!
