Abstract: 

The article focuses on how elementary school students engage with developing a statistical question (how students learn about developing and refining a question for data collection) and the analysis part of the data. For the analytic part, how students make sense of their data once they are collected, e.g. how they relate graphs, numbers, and statistics back to their original question, is addressed in this article.
