ASA Releases Statistical Education of Teachers Report for PreK-12

The American Statistical Association (ASA) has issued the Statistical Education of Teachers (SET) Report, a report that calls on mathematicians, statisticians, mathematics educators and statistics educators to collaborate in preparing pre-K-12 teachers to teach intellectually demanding statistics courses. SET was commissioned to clarify the recommendations for teacher statistical preparation in the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences' Mathematical Education of Teachers II report. The SET report, which is a resource stakeholders can use to guide statistics instruction preparation of current and future teachers, was developed by a team of statistics and education experts chaired by Christine Franklin, University of Georgia. The free report is available to download online; printed copies will be available this fall.
