Title: Results from a Multi-Institution Study of the Progression and Retention of Student Learning Using Simulation-Based Inference

Simulation-based inference has been gaining in popularity as an alternative framework on which to scaffold students understanding of the core logic of statistical inference in the algebra-based introductory statistics course (Stat 101). For the last five years, our group has been evaluating students' attitudes, conceptual understanding, and learning trajectories in simulation-based curricula through a large scale, multi-site assessment project involving over 10,000 students and 200 instructors. In this talk I will summarize findings from this multi-institution project looking at overall trends in student performance including curricular differences in post-course performance and retention.
