Topic Abstract
Research in statistics education is a priority area for IASE, since a well-developed research literature and research agenda are essential for promoting the field of statistics education. In this particular ICOTS meeting we will pay particular attention to the development of statistics education research, examining current research problems, directions for future areas of inquiry, and the use of theoretical models on which our research might be based. In addition to including sessions on teaching and learning statistics and probability we also plan to focus sessions on research related to assessing student outcomes, the role of technology in learning statistics as well as in conducting research on student learning, and on the conceptions and beliefs of statistics teachers.
