Presentation Abstract
This paper reports on the use of a system designed to encourage statistics students to read the course text as a primary source of information and ideas. Reading and limited assessment would precede classroom teaching. The system has been implemented for eight semesters. Summaries of data collected will be presented, as will qualitative feedback from students.
