Abstract

Our presentation will highlight the needs in statistics education from the perspective of client disciplines based on the use of statistics in teaching and research in various academic affiliations. This information will cultivate discussion on how to use the information to guide curriculum development in introductory statistics. As a result of this study, a large data set was compiled that can be used in the classroom for students to explore. A demonstration of how to access and use the data set in class will be given.
