of Statistics Education (JSE) disseminates knowledge for the
improvement of statistics education at all levels, including elementary,
secondary, post-secondary, post-graduate, continuing, and workplace
education. It is distributed electronically and, in accord with its broad
focus, publishes articles that enhance the exchange of a diversity of
interesting and useful information among educators, practitioners, and
researchers around the world. The intended audience includes anyone who
teaches statistics, as well as those interested in research on statistical
and probabilistic reasoning. All submissions are rigorously refereed using
a double-blind peer review process.
submitted to the journal should be relevant to the mission of JSE. Possible
topics for manuscripts include, but are not restricted to: curricular
reform in statistics, the use of cooperative learning and projects,
innovative methods of instruction, assessment, and research (including case
studies) on students' understanding of probability and statistics, research
on the teaching of statistics, attitudes and beliefs about statistics,
creative and tested ideas (including experiments and demonstrations) for
teaching probability and statistics topics, the use of computers and other
media in teaching, statistical literacy, and distance education. Articles
that provide a scholarly overview of the literature on a particular topic
are also of interest. Reviews of software, books, and other teaching
materials will also be considered, provided these reviews describe actual experiences
using the materials.
JSE also features departments called "Teaching Bits: A Resource for
Teachers of Statistics," "Datasets and Stories,"and "Research on K-12 Statistics Education."
"Teaching Bits" summarizes interesting current events and
research that can be used as examples in the statistics classroom, as well
as pertinent items from the education literature. The "Datasets and
Stories" department not only identifies interesting datasets and
describes their useful pedagogical features, but enables instructors to
download the datasets for further analysis or dissemination to students. The "Research on K-12 Statistics Education" department publishes research related to the teaching, learning, and assessment of statistics in K-12 settings.
with the Journal of Statistics Education is the JSE Information Service.
The JSE Information Service provides a source of information for teachers
of statistics that includes the archives of EDSTAT-L (an electronic
discussion list on statistics education), information about the
International Association for Statistical Education, and links to many
other statistics education sources.
