The Journal of Statistics Education 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.
Manuscripts 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.
In addition, JSE also features departments called "Teaching Bits: A Resource for Teachers of Statistics" and "Datasets and Stories." "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.
Associated 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.
