http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2331
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2331On this site, students can practice classifying statistics problems. They first click to check the statistical methods that they want to practice classifying. Then they click the "Submit" button to get a description of a research project that involves a statistical technique. Students then click on the technique that will most likely be used in the project. If they choose the incorrect answer, they must read the hint and try again. When they get something correct, they click on the "Next" button to try another problem.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:44:27 -0400Sample ConcepTest Questions for Statistics
