Welcome to the SRTL Home Page

Over the past decade there has been an increasingly strong call for statistics education to focus more on statistical literacy, reasoning, and thinking. One of the main arguments presented is that traditional approaches to teaching statistics focus on skills, procedures, and computations, which do not lead students to reason or think statistically. The SRTL International Collaboration began in 1999 to foster current and innovative research studies that examine the nature and development of statistical literacy, reasoning, and thinking, and to explore the challenge posed to educators at all levels –– to develop these desired learning goals for students. The SRTL Forums, co-chaired by Joan Garfield (e-mail: jbg@umn.edu) and Dani Ben-Zvi (e-mail:dbenzvi@haifa.ac.il), offer scientific gatherings every two years and related publications in journals, and books.
