The concepts of sampling variability and sampling distribution are at the core of statistical inference methods such as tests of hypotheses or confidence intervals. Having a good foundation of these concepts helps students in understanding and solving inference problems.
In this webinar, Dr. Mori Jamshidian of California State University, Fullerton, introduces how Rguroo’s simulation capabilities, graphics, and other data analysis tools can facilitate the teaching of sampling variability and sampling distributions. He shows how students’ knowledge of these concepts aids their understanding of tests of hypotheses and confidence intervals.
