Researching assessment in Statistics education



This session focuses on research in the area of assessment in statistics education. It is envisaged that the presentations will describe research in progress on questions such as:

  • As the mechanics of computation and graphical presentation become ever more automated in the uses of statistics, how should the methods of assessment change?
  • As statistics becomes more multi-disciplinary, what impact does this have on what methods of assessment are appropriate?
  • Does technology offer innovative ways of assessment?
  • Where should statistics assessment be located within national frameworks?

Research on other questions in this field will be welcomed.
