A meta analysis on students attitudes toward statistics

Emmioğlu, Esma
Çapa Aydın, Yeşim
Statistics has been a compulsory course for most of the students enrolled in various undergraduate and graduate programs. Despite the fact that these courses have been widely practiced, research on statistics education has accelerated recently. A small but growing body of evidence showed that attitudes toward statistics contribute to the success in statistics courses (Chiesi & Primi, 2008; Dempster & McCorry, 2009; Limpscomb, Hotard, Shelley, & Baldwin, 2002; Sorge & Schau, 2002). The present study aims to explore the relationship between attitudes toward statistics and statistics achievement through a meta-analysis.

In the general approach to program evaluation, outsiders, i.e., people who are not parts of a program, do the evaluation. This descriptive study starts out with the belief that the best feedback in program evaluation can only come from insiders, i.e., faculty, students, and alumni, who are parts of a partic...
