According to Zewotir and North, (2011) Statistical topics have been introduced during school education in many countries over the last few decades. Statistics is seen as a vital topic since future citizens in all countries should be able to orient themselves in a data-driven world and hence possess skills and understanding of issues in data collection, organization, analysis or interpretation. The analysis of data has contributed to the optimization of school results, and this is a movement that is growing more and more. This is because statistics applied to education is a tool capable of helping administrators and teachers when facing challenges inside and outside the classroom. It is used for efficient management, differentiated assessment, personalized teaching, and well as determination of school dropout rate.
