Data and context in statistics education: towards an evidence-based society


Data is preferable to anecdote or intuition as a basis for robust decision making in many professions and sections of society. More and more we want to see “the evidence”. The root purpose of statistics is to extract insight and meaning about real contexts using data. Successful learning processes must be researched and we must consider how data and context motivate our students and guide our education practices.
