Presented by: Dale Berger, Amanda Saw, Giovanni Sosa, Justin Mary, and Christopher Pentoney; Claremont Graduate University


This webinar will present the tutorials, applets, and other resources available on the Web Interface for Statistics Education project ( Following an overview of WISE resources, we will demonstrate and discuss how instructors can use interactive applets to help students gain a better intuitive understanding of fundamental concepts like sampling distributions and statistical power. The webinar will conclude with a demonstration of a mini-lecture on statistical power, using an interactive applet to show how statistical power, sample size, effect size, and alpha error rate are interrelated. Student handouts and exercises will be provided.
