Pearson: Art of Stat - Resampling in the Cloud (Test Drive)

With Bernhard Klingenberg, Williams College & Christine Franklin, University of Georgia


Off-load your intro stats computing needs to the cloud. In this live demonstration, we will showcase the functionality and purpose of a few web apps from We will first focus on an app that explores the correlation coefficient and visualizes how the permutation distribution is built, step by step, and how it is used to assess the strength of a relationship. With the understanding developed there, we will explore other apps that use the permutation idea for statistical inference, such as two-group comparisons. All apps are interactive and freely accessible with any browser.
