Abstract

Statistical literacy, statistical reasoning, and statistical thinking are highly valued and expected from US college graduates. However, coupled with ill-preparation of their math capability in K-12 schools, many American undergraduate students in business school struggle in the required statistics course(s). Technology-enhanced technology has the potential to bring about positive changes in content and course delivery format. To find meaningful pedagogy to enrich students’ statistics learning experiences and enhance their statistical performance, this study explores undergraduate students’ struggle in their statistical learning process, and the support or scaffolds they need to facilitate their statistics learning.
