• ### Data+Applet: Restriction of Range

This applet shows how the correlation between two variables is affected by the range of the variable plotted on the X-axis.
• ### A "Small" Effect Size Can Make a Large Difference

This applet demonstrates that even a "small" effect can be important under some circumstances. Applicants from two groups apply for a job. The user manipulates the mean and the cut-off score in order to see the effects the small changes has on the number of people hired in each group. The effects on the proportion of hired applicants from each group are displayed.(Requires a browser that supports Java).
• ### Dataset Example: Reliability and Regression Analysis

This applet demonstrates how the reliability of X and Y affect various aspects of the regression of Y on X.
• ### Data Collection: The Data Library

The Data Library contains lists of ongoing data-sharing projects, downloadable data sets in Excel spreadsheet format, and other sources of data found on the web.
• ### Data Collection: Data Cleaning Assignment

This activity guides students through the process of checking the validity of data, performing summary analysis, constructing box plots, and determining whether significant differences exist. The data comes from a study of mineral levels in older adults and is available in Minitab, Excel, SAS, and text formats.
• ### ** Sampling from a Real Estate Database

This material is a detailed exercise for students in introductory statistics. Students are asked to collect a random sample of data from a real estate website; conduct descriptive statistics (including confidence intervals); and write a report summarizing their dataset. The primary learning goals are to teach students 1) how to obtain a random sample; 2) how to interpret confidence intervals; 3) how to simulate and interpret a sampling distribution; and 4) how to communicate descriptive statistics.
• ### Data Collection: Chance Data Sets

This site contains data sets to help teach a Chance course and help students understand issues that may not be found in a standard statistics text. Topics covered include: mean, median, random walks, regression, correlation, and more.
• ### Exploratory Data Analysis Case Studies (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This part of the NIST Engineering Statistics Handbook contains case studies for Exploratory Data Analysis. Some of the topics include normal and uniform random numbers, reliability using airplane glass failure times, and analysis of primary factors using ceramic strength.
• ### Categorical Data

This site gives a definition and an example of categorical data. Topics include two-way tables, bar graphs, and segmented bar graphs.
• ### Full Factorial Example (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This section in the Engineering Statistics Handbook takes a data set and walks the user through analysis and experimental design based on the data.
