Overview:

The Statistics CWSEI program started in 2007 and initially concentrated on the transformation of STAT 200, Elementary Statistics for Applications, an introductory course presently taken by around one thousand undergraduate students per year. In recent years our focus has expanded to enhance the teaching and assessment on STAT 241/251, Elementary Statistics (a calculus-based introduction for Applied Science and Computer Science students), STAT 300, Intermediate Statistics for Applications (a second course accessible to any student with a generic first course in Statistics), STAT 302, Introduction to Probability, STAT 305, Introduction to Statistical Inference, and STAT 443, Time Series and Forecasting. Our aim is to enhance the teaching and learning experience within our undergraduate courses through methods of proven effectiveness. There are eight faculty members and one STLF recently involved in the Statistics department's CWSEI project.
