Comments The stats community needs more opportunities like this for students to practice. The author has done a great job in getting this process started. The challenge is that there is so much variety in what people teach in the intro stats course that customization is almost impossible to go without. Right now this applet has limited appeal because not many instructors get through all those topics in one course and without a way to limit questions to just the
topics that have been covered will preclude most instructors from using this applet. I would love to use this in my own class, but right now I don't get to several of the methods among the 13 choices in the first course. With more and
more education research showing that students forget most of what we teach in 6 months anyway, I have been concentrating on emphasizing less topics, but trying to go to a deeper and more lasting understanding.

I do think for those instructors that do get through all the methods, this would be a very helpful tool.
