Resources for Chinese Statistics Educators

Here you will find a collection resources for statistics educators that have been translated to Chinese.

In a collaboration between NC State University and East China Normal University, the HI-RiSE team hosted visiting scholar, Ruijie He, for the 2017-2018 academic school year. During that time He was able to translate the following documents on statistics education.

This brief reading describes statistical habits of mind and how they can be used in the four phases of a statistical investigation. Think about how you might help your students develop these habits when teaching statistics.


什么是一个好的问题 What Makes a Good Question

Author: Maxine Pfannkuch, Matt Regan, Chris Wild, and Nicholas Horton.

Read an excerpt from Pfannkuch et al.’s (2010) paper explaining how different ways of posing questions might influence students’ reaction. Especially, the authors consider how the questions might bear an image of descriptive (describing what is going on with the data collected) or inferential (making generalization from the data collected to a larger population).

什么是推断性的推理 What is inferential reasoning?

This short paper describes inferential reasoning and key aspects of inferential reasoning that can be emphasized in order to support learners in developing statistical thinking in relation to making inferences.

使用任务和问题促进推断性推理能力 Using tasks and posing questions to promote inferential reasoning

This short paper highlights general characteristics of good inferential tasks that can help get students engaged in inferential reasoning. It also provides examples of investigative questions that can be used to promote opportunities for engaging students in inferential reasoning. Three categories of investigative questions (i.e., comparing groups, samples to populations, competing models ) that support students in making inferences are described.

支持推断性推理中情景的重要性 The importance of context to support inferential reasoning

This brief reading provides details and strategies for how to choose and use meaningful contexts in your teaching practices to provide opportunities for inferential reasoning.
