New Statistics Course created to fulfill math requirement for some programs
Kent State created a statistics course that is accessible to students with a basic knowledge of algebra. By making this course available on a large scale, the need for algebra remediation at Kent has been reduced by more than 50%. The course will be taught in a state-of-the-art Scale-Up lab that emphasizes active and collaborative learning with extensive access to technological support, fully consistent with the American Statistical Association's GAISE guidelines. The aim is to develop consumers, rather than users, of statistics with excellent conceptual understanding and critical thinking skills. Scale-Up is an environment that has been used with great success in many institutions and in many disciplines.
