Assessing statistical investigations
The R11497 Investigating Collecting Data – unit of work easily lends itself to allowing for differentiated learning programs.
Assessment guidelines include:
- a personal blog
- oral presentations
In personal blogs, students record anecdotal records of existing knowledge and track their learning journey. A glossary of terms is constructed to support individual development of statistical language.
Group work involves designing a poster to be displayed publicly and giving a two-minute oral presentation relating their personal data to class data, which is ideally supported with digital or video resources.
The Statistical Investigations: Rubric may be used for both the individual or group work.
- The criterion Forms can relate to any statistical representations used by students and/or the mode of presentation selected, such as a poster.
- The criterion Knowledge can relate to the particular statistical concept developed throughout the investigation.
