We surveyed 146 out of 217 students who took basic statistics course at the post secondary level. The objectives were to asses the current pedagogy in teaching statistics based on Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy; determine software tools that facilitated the learning of statistics and identify the extent of the use of these resources; and revise the course syllabus in basic statistics to incorporate content and approaches to better match 21st century teaching-learning. The survey revealed that teachers in statistics were using a mixed approach – the traditional and digital approaches; that students were provided with computers in the laboratory with installed licensed statistical software, Word processing, and internet connection, and that they have good knowledge in using them. After the assessment, the course syllabus which contains recommended teaching strategies on the topic(s) was developed.
