Psychology Professor Chris Aberson receives SSRIC Instructional Materials Award

Professor Chris Aberson (Psychology) is one of two recipients of the 2021 SSRIC Instructional Materials award for his proposal on how to teach ANOVA using R. Dr. Aberson developed a set of interactive tutorials for teaching his introductory statistics class. The tutorials use a single interface to deliver short lecture videos (5-10 minutes), low stakes quizzes, extra examples, and, perhaps most important, users can run R scripts within the tutorial so that they may immediately apply what they have learned to hands-on problems. These materials are freely available for instructors to adapt to their own needs (e.g., swap out my videos for their own). His project will contribute to the diversity of instructional materials available to faculty and will enhance student learning outcomes.
