Current Issue

The November 2014 (Volume 22, Number 3) issue of JSE is now available. The table of contents can be accessed at: 2014 Table of Contents. This issue includes six regular articles, two Research on K-12 Statistics Education articles, two Teaching Bits, and an interview by Allan Rossman with Josh Tabor.

As we normally do in our November issue, we have acknowledged all of the great referees who helped to review articles during the past year. We couldn't publish high quality articles without the help of our many reviewers, and we are extremely thankful for their time and effort. I also want to give a very big thank you to Jean Scott, our Editoral Assistant, for all of her hard work and support. Jean makes this job easy for me!

We hope you enjoy this issue, and, as always, we welcome your feedback. The next issue of JSE is due to be announced in March 2015.


The JSE Webinar Series on CAUSEweb

The JSE webinar series continues to take place approximately once each month, on the third Tuesday of the month, from 12 – 1 p.m. (U.S. Eastern time), through the Consortium for the Advancement of Undergraduate Statistics Education (CAUSE).   Authors of papers that appear in JSE discuss their work and answer questions about their work.  Each webinar includes discussion of up to two papers from JSE.  For more information on webinars that have already taken place, in addition to upcoming webinars, please visit
