STATSpaß - Playfully becoming a statistics expert: Teaching project funded by Innovation Plus

We received funding by Innovation Plus to implement a fun, but serious statistics game.

Current statistics teaching still misses out on conveying skills toward quick and accurate statistical judgement. However, such skills is indispensable for decision-making experts in life and health sciences and should be promoted beyond the acquisition of statistical knowledge to the purpose of data analyses in research. To this end, our statistics professor Andrea Hildebrandt received funding by the programme Innovation Plus to develop and evaluate with the participation of students a (serious) game to be called STATSpaß. The digital game is also intended to promote statistical judgements for problems faced in everyday life, so that statistics education will also contribute to personality development in the future.
