StatKey - Online Tools for Teaching Bootstrap Intervals and Randomization Tests

Tuesday, August 27th, 201312:00 pm – 12:30 pm ET

Presented by: Robin Lock, St. Lawrence University


We have developed a set of freely available web-based apps called StatKey ( for supporting statistics courses that use modern simulation methods (such as bootstrap intervals and randomization tests) to introduce the core ideas of statistical inference. In this webinar we demonstrate the main features of StatKey and discuss how it can be used to make these methods easily accessible and understandable for students with a wide variety of backgrounds. Although StatKey's built-in examples are coordinated with the Wiley text Statistics: Unlocking the Power of Data, the tools allow students and instructors to input and analyze their own data and can be used with any course seeking to give students experience with what many people call the "next big thing" in statistics education.
