Abstract: 

This study is aimed at the investigation of the non-cognitive factors related to students' beliefs and attitude before and after taking an introductory statistics course using an interview methodology. Of particular interest is to compare students' beliefs and attitude between students from a technology-rich class and from a traditional class. The purposes are (a) to investigate if students' attitude has changed after taking a technology-rich statistics class and their experience about technology, and (b) to compare if there is a dramatic difference between the technology-rich class and a traditional class before and after taking the course.
