Activity summary report for the Statistics CWSEI group (course and curriculum projects, research, development of assessment tools) - PDF download
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. We later expanded to enhance the teaching and assessment in 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 was to enhance the teaching and learning experience within our undergraduate courses through methods of proven effectiveness. There were eight faculty members and one STLF involved.
