Simulation-based inference methods are growing in popularity around the world, but to date much of the innovation and assessment has been focused in a few, English speaking countries (e.g., U.S., Australia, Canada). We recently began a multi-step initiative to implement and assess a simulation-based inference curriculum at an Indonesian university. In this paper we will discuss our implementation and provide assessment data comparing student performance on standardized conceptual assessments of student understanding using a standard introductory statistics curriculum as compared to a simulation-based inference approach.
