Abstract

In a three-year longitudinal intervention study developing an understanding of statisticalliteracy with a cohort of students from Years 4 to 6, teachers delivered lessons fromprovided materials, including scripts and prompts. Besides completing seven majorinvestigations, workbooks, and several in-class assessments, the students undertook foursurveys, from which their overall progress was determined, as well as individual learningprogressions. Findings indicated that despite experiencing the same lessons delivered insimilar ways, students had very different learning progressions. The implications of thesefindings are explored.
