Abstract

The research reported here uses a pre/post-test model and stimulated recall interviews to assess teachers’ statistical reasoning about comparing distributions, when enrolled in a graduate-level statistics education course. We discuss key aspects of the course design aimed at improving teachers’ learning and teaching of statistics, and the resulting different ways of reasoning about comparing distributions that teachers exhibited before and after the course.
