Tuesday, August 20th, 20192:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Presented by: Victoria Woodard (Notre Dame University)


In this webinar, I will discuss findings from a qualitative study that was conducted based on written work and task-based interviews of students completing a second course in statistics. In particular, I will focus on three major topics:

  1. The methodology used for analyzing our qualitative data,
  2. Beginning to define the relationship that was observed between a student’s ability to think statistically while utilizing statistical computing tools and
  3. Observations about how students solve problems while utilizing statistical computing tools.
