This communication presents an adaptation of one of the innovative learning scenarios in the European secondary education project, “EarlyStatistics”, whose main goal is to improve pupils’ competence in statistics. This project has just been selected for the “2009 Best Cooperative Project Award in Statistical Literacy”. In this implementation, the pupils worked in a collaborative and self-governing form throughout the process. To provide an objective description of the pupils’ level of statistical competence, an instrument was designed that incorporates various competence indices proposed in the literature.
