Abstract

Research in the areas of psychology, statistical education, and mathematics education is reviewed and the results applied to the teaching of college-level statistics courses. The argument is made that statistics educators need to determine what it is they really want students to learn, to modify their teaching according to suggestions from the research literature, and to use assessment to determine if their teaching is effective and if students are developing statistical understanding and competence. /// La recherche dans les domaines de la psychologie et de l'éducation en statistique et en mathématique est revue et les résultats sont appliqués à l'enseignement des cours de la statistique au niveau collégial. On énonce l'argument que les éducateurs en statistique doivent déterminer ce qu'ils veulent vraiment enseigner aux étudiants. Ainsi, ils seront en mesure de modifier leur méthode d'enseignement selon les suggestions provenant des documents de la recherche, et ils seront également en mesure d'utiliser les évaluations qui visent à déterminer si leur méthode d'enseignement est efficace et si les étudiants élaborent une compréhension et des compétences en matière de statistiques.
