The “Discovering Statistics” undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide students with a comprehensive and interactive learning experience that emphasizes the acquisition of statistical concepts, as well as the practical application of these concepts through the use of embedded videos, interactive lessons, workbook, and quizzes. The objective of this curriculum is to equip undergraduate students, particularly those without prior background in statistics, with the necessary skills to conduct statistical analyses, accurately interpret output, and effectively consume quantitative research. Through the completion of this curriculum, it is intended that students will gain a solid foundation in statistical literacy and the ability to confidently apply their understanding in academic and professional settings.

Features

Course Modules and Lessons

The curriculum comprises a range of lessons. The introductory modules and lessons cover fundamental statistical concepts such as research design, correlation analysis, t-tests, z-tests, proportion tests, non-parametric tests, and data visualization. Additionally, the curriculum includes a comprehensive workbook component, which is specifically designed to enhance the learning experience by providing step-by-step guidance on the calculation and interpretation of each statistical test covered in the modules, this includes descriptives, correlations, t-tests, z-tests, proportion tests, non-parametric tests and data visualization. This workbook component is intended to provide students with a hands-on, practical experience in applying statistical concepts and methods.


Invitation to Attend a Demonstration of the Discovering Statistics Curriculum and Intellectus Statistics Tool: Enhance Statistical Literacy and Research Capabilities

During a demonstration, you will have the opportunity to learn about the various features and capabilities of the curriculum and tool, as well as the different options for acquiring them, such as student purchase or department/institutional purchase (referred to as Open Access). We will also provide information on the resources and support services that are available to assist with implementation and instruction. We hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about this valuable resource and its potential to enhance the statistical literacy and research capabilities of our students and faculty.

Acquiring the Discovering Statistics Curriculum and Intellectus Statistics Tool: Student Purchase and Department/Institutional Open Access Options

The Discovering Statistics curriculum and the Intellectus Statistics tool can be obtained through two primary means: student purchase or department/institutional purchase (referred to as Open Access).

Under the student purchase option, individuals can purchase the Intellectus Statistics tool, the accompanying courses and workbooks, and additional resources for a period of six months. Faculty teaching the course can provide students with a link to access the tool and course materials, and in turn, receive access to the materials at no cost. This approach allows for integration of the course materials within the institution’s Learning Management System (LMS).

The department/institutional purchase, or Open Access, is another option to acquire the Discovering Statistics curriculum and the Intellectus Statistics tool. Under this option, the entire department or institution obtains access to the tool and materials, the fee for access is heavily discounted, and the course materials, training, and additional resources are provided at no cost. This approach allows for widespread adoption and integration of the curriculum across the department or institution, supporting the development of statistical literacy and research capabilities among students and faculty.
