|Title:||Measuring Statistical Literacy||Contributor(s):||Callingham, RA (author); Watson, J (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/442||Abstract:||This study considers the measurement of Statistical Literacy understanding that goes beyond the basic chance and data skills and knowledge in the mathematics curriculum. This understanding requires application of mathematical skills in a range of contextual situations and draws on aspects of statistics, such as variation andinference, which may not be explicit in the school curriculum. The study reports the outcomes from tests of Statistical Literacy given to 673 students from Grades 5 to 10. It confirms the nature and structure of a previously identified construct of Statistical Literacy and proposes three subgroups of items that addressaspects of Statistical Literacy that might usefully be measured by classroom teachers.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Applied Measurement, 6(1), p. 19-47||Publisher:||JAM Press||Place of Publication:||Maple Grove||ISSN:||1529-7713||Field of Research (FOR):||130303 Education Assessment and Evaluation||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 191
