Happy & Healthy 2023/ Year of the Rabbit! I hope the year has started well
As mentioned in Megan’s previous email, we are excited to keep the CAUSE
Research Reading Group going this year. We will focus on four topics/themes
this year each of which will last about three months, with two meetings per
month. Megan and I have selected several possible articles for each topic,
but we would appreciate it if interested participants could also suggest
and bring in other articles that fit each theme (especially those that they
would like to read and discuss with the others).
Big thanks to those who responded to our survey last month. According to
the received inputs, the top four chosen topics are:
- Assessment in Statistics Education (29)
- Data Science Education (23)
- Reasoning about data (23)
- Frameworks in Statistics and Data Science (21)
We will meet on the *first & third Wednesday* of the month at 2-3PM ET/
11AM-12PM PT during the *Spring 2023*. We will begin with the topic
in Statistics Education*”, and the first article we will read is:
*Sabbag, A. G., Garfield, J., & Zieffler, A. (2015). Quality Assessments in
Statistics Education: A Focus on the GOALS Instrument. In Advances in
Statistics Education: Developments, Experiences, and Assessments.
Proceedings of the Satellite Conference of the International Association
for Statistical Education (IASE). MA Sorto, available@
Our first meeting will be at *2 pm ET *(1 pm CT, noon MT, 11 am PT) on
*Wednesday*, *February 1st, 2023*.

Like last year, we are inviting and strongly encouraging interested
participants to *host* one article or two of their own choice in the new
year. Many of our past hosts (including ourselves) found this a very
valuable experience, so please consider hosting a meeting for the group. As
the host, you can choose one of the suggested articles on the list *OR
bring/suggest an article related to this topic that you would like to
discuss with the group,* and propose 4 to 5 questions to get the
conversation started from the article you pick. Please don’t hesitate to
let me or Megan know if you have any questions about hosting a session or
participating in this reading group.
Don’t worry if you didn’t attend our meetings last year. All meetings are
independent from each other, so please join us if you are interested. *All
Look forward to seeing you on February 1st!
