• A Review of Statistical Power Analysis Software

Comparison of important aspects of five statistical analysis programs with helpful summary characteristic tables for those interested in finding the best program for their personal use.
• Electronic Encyclopedia of Statistical Examples and Exercises

One of the goals for the development of the Electronic Encyclopedia of Statistical Examples and Exercises (EESEE) was to provide a wide variety of timely, real examples with real data for use in statistics classes. With each story in EESEE, several thought provoking questions were designed to make students think carefully about statistical issues raised by these applications.
• **Java Applets for Power and Sample Size

This collection of free, interactive Java applets provides a graphical interface for studying the power of the most commonly encountered experimental designs. Intended to be useful in planning statistical studies, these applets cover confidence intervals for means or proportions, one and two sample hypothesis tests for means or proportions, linear regression, balanced ANOVA designs, and tests of multiple correlation, Chi-square, and Poisson. Each applet opens in its own window with sliders, which are convertible to number-entry fields, for manipulating associated parameters. Controlling for the other parameters, users can change sample size, standard deviation, type I error (alpha) and effect size one at a time to see how each affects power. Conversely, users can manipulate the power for the test to determine the necessary sample size or margin of error. Additional features include a graph option by which the program plots a dependent variable (i.e. power) over a range of parameter values; the graph is automatically updated as the parameters are changed. Each dialog window also offers a Help menu which provides instructions for using the applet. The applets can be used over the Internet or downloaded onto the user's own computer.
• ARTIST Journals and Writing Assessments

This section of ARTIST contains suggestions for implementing student journals, writing assignments, and minute papers in statistics classes. Links to general references for writing assessments are included.
• ARTIST Projects

This site describes and explains the use of students projects and their assessment capabilities and purposes. It lists a few student projects by authors and also scoring rubrics and samples of students work.
• **ARTIST Assessment Builder

A searchable database of more than 1000 test questions for introductory statistics concepts. The user is prompted to select subject material and learning outcome expectations from a variety of question formats and then downloads the items and can edit the test with a word processor.
• Note-Taking: An Essential Learning Tool

Tips for helping students to take more effective notes during lecture.
• Teaching with, and preparing guided notes for your lecture

A useful site for instructors to learn how to create and incorporate guided notes into their classroom.
• Electronic Statistics Textbook

This Electronic Statistics Textbook offers training in the understanding and application of statistics ... and covers a wide variety of applications, including laboratory research (biomedical, agricultural, etc.), business statistics and forecasting, social science statistics and survey research, data mining, engineering and quality control applications, and many others. Quoted from the index page of the text.
• Exploratory Data Analysis Case Studies (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This part of the NIST Engineering Statistics Handbook contains case studies for Exploratory Data Analysis. Some of the topics include normal and uniform random numbers, reliability using airplane glass failure times, and analysis of primary factors using ceramic strength.
