Statistics Task Design Overview

What is statistical task design?

The tasks that are used to engage students in statistics are a primary way that educators provide opportunities for students to develop statistics habits of mind and more sophisticated approaches to using data to make evidence-based claims. Evaluating, creating, and choosing to use worthwhile tasks is an important aspect of being an effective teacher of statistics.
