University of Wollongong: Statistical Literacy

University of Wollongong: Statistical Literacy [http://www.uow.edu.au/student/attributes/statlit/] - Statistics surround us in the form of polling reports, census data, and the other seemingly mundane details of life. This site created by the University of Wollongong offers up a series of modules designed to help users learn about the world of statistics. As their site suggests, the modules will help users become more knowledgeable about surveys and scientific experiments. Users will want to look at the short explanations concerning the purpose of these modules and statistics in general before getting started. Currently, the site offers three modules: "Producing Data"; "Describing, Clarifying and Presenting Data"; and, "Interpreting Data". In each module, visitors will be presented with detailed explanations of these different aspects of statistics in a language that is quite accessible. >From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2008. http://scout.wisc.edu/
