"Who needs statistics?" New competition looks to make stats relevant for all.

Taming of Chance, Story Competition
The Taming of Chance Story Competition (brought to us by The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences in partnership with the American Statistical Association) seeks to answer a critical question at the center of how statistics is (or is not) relevant to our everyday lives. Answering the question "What our world would be like if the normal curve had never been discovered" , statistics educators and students are invited to tell a story which makes the subject resonate with a general audience who increasingly have a need to be quantitatively literate.



Research Report

CAUSE Announces Release of Statistics Education Research Report

CAUSE is pleased to announce the release of a new report. Funded by grants from NSF and supported by ASA, this project was a collaborative effort that took place over two years. It provides concise and current reviews of the research in six areas as well as suggested research questions with associated assessment issues and pointers on how answers to these questions can improve the teaching and learning of statistics. A webinar to discuss the report is planned for May.

Facebook Group

CAUSEweb Facebook Group
CAUSEweb now has an official Facebook group. We hope that it will be a place where we can share new things going on and also seek out new ideas and resources from the Statistics Education community.

PROJECT-SET: Statistics Education for Teachers

Project-SET is a new NSF funded project that aims to develop innovative curricular materials to enhance the ability of high school teachers to foster students' statistical learning regarding two fundamental topics: sampling variability and regression. These materials will be useful for teacher preparation institutions, school districts, professional development programs, and individuals interested in furthering their own statistical knowledge. All materials will be geared towards helping high school teachers implement the Common Core State Standards for statistics as well as closely align with the learning goals outlined in the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education: A Pre-K-12 Curriculum Framework (GAISE) report.
