Comments on the learning in introductory statistics courses
AbstractA recurrent problem in teaching is to evaluate what the students will retain from the contents discussed in class. For the students who completed two basic courses on statistics, we applied a questionnaire with a test, 3 months after the end of the course. The test was composed of 50 true-false questions. The results revealed that students could satisfactorily answer the questions directly related with definitions. However, there was no such performance when the questions required additional procedures related.
