Improving the Statistical Curriculum Sequence
Most introductory statistics classes have been taught using a standard curriculum sequence. We developed a new statistical curriculum sequence with the goal of improving student learning and memory of statistical concepts. Our proposed curriculum sequence came about by essentially inverting the traditional sequence model. We will test our proposed curriculum sequence throughout the 2005-2006 school year in STA 215 (Introductory Applied Statistics) classes to determine if this improves learning. We will also be following these students in future statistics related classes (such as PSY 300 or SS 300) to determine if this improves memory as well.
