Abstract

From 2011 - 2013, eight workshops were presented around the country. These workshops were to improve statistical expertise and statistics teaching skills among statistics educators. In the workshops, participants studied exam questions and the associated common mistakes that students make. Through these questions, we explored - What is the statistical concept being assessed? What is the correct answer? What is the most popular incorrect answer? and for the incorrect answer(s), What's the problem? Why is it a problem? and How can we address the problem? Participants were presented with a framework which they could take and use with their own homework and exam problems. In our session, after a brief introduction, four panelists who attended one of the workshops will present how they are using the workshop information in their classrooms.
