Pre-service Elementary Teachers’ Conceptual Understanding of Statistics
This study compared two different methods of teaching a unit on statistics taught over a four-week portion of a content course for future elementary teachers. One of the units focused on the statistical process and the other was consistent with a standard textbook. This study used the Levels of Conceptual Understanding of Statistics Test in addition to regular coursework to measure students’ conceptual understanding.
