Author(s): Joshua Beemer*+

Keywords: SATS ; Education ; Student Attitudes

Student attitudes regarding introductory statistics courses are not always the most positive. The purpose of this research is to utilize the Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics to evaluate introductory statistics students' attitudes pre- and post course. Furthermore, comparisons of attitudes within different introductory course curricula across institutions will be made, along with contrasts between current data and data from past years at the same institution with increased implementation of a randomization-based curriculum. Various components within the survey the various components, such as difficulty, value, and interest, will be assessed in order to determine where students' attitudes are affected the most and how they are correlated with other variables such as course grades and learning styles.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
