Presented by: Gina Reed, Gainesville State College


This presentation focuses on how to incorporate a service learning component into introductory statistics. Service-learning is a concrete application of statistical methods using real data with the analysis and interpretation that is useful to a community agency. Discussion will include how to locate an organization, the selection of appropriate content for the project with focus on understanding what questions need to be answered and how to do so, the grading rubric for the presentations or posters and the time line of formative evaluation as the project proceeds.
