Proposal Summary: An understanding of descriptive and inferential statistics is important in many fields of study as well as in day-to-day modern life. However, students often report that statistics courses are difficult and unpleasant, and taking an introductory statistics class has been associated with a decrease in interest in the field of statistics. This project aims to develop an interactive simulation environment to introduce statistical concepts in the social sciences. I propose a one-year study to demonstrate “proof-of-concept” for the use of a statistics game to facilitate learning in applied statistics.
