Reviews

“This handbook in many ways is an impressive accomplishment … mainly useful for researchers in statistics education, and to some degree for teachers of statistics at the primary and secondary education levels.” (Andreas Rosenblad, International Statistical Review, Vol. 87 (1), 2019)

“This book is an important resource for researchers in the field of Statistics Education. Written collaboratively by a diverse group of educators and statisticians, this work provides the “state of the art” (as of 2018) and a vantage point useful for planning future pedagogical research. The articles in this handbook summarize what is known about the teaching and learning of Statistics, the current developments in the field, and the many unknowns and questions we still have.” (Mark Causapin, MAA Reviews, January, 2019)​
