StatCrunch Group Features

September 17, 2010 at 5:01 am Leave a comment

All of my previous StatCrunch posts have focused on the StatCrunch tool, which is fantastic. Today I’ll talk about StatCrunch groups and how they can enhance your class.

You can create a group for your class to join. This allows you to easily share a survey for your students to take, share the results, or share any other data set you wish.

Your students can do the same – they can post their own survey and share data sets. They can also publish their own StatCrunch results, which is a terrific way to “turn in” homework. The instructor, and other students, can post comments on student work. It is close to Facebook for the statistics classroom – an easy way for students to post work for others to examine.

This feature is only available with the full blown StatCrunch access, which now comes automatically for students who enroll in a MyStatLab course.

If you have any questions or comments about StatCrunch, I invite you to share your thoughts – please leave your comment or you can reach me through the contact page on my website .

I am a mathematics instructor at College of the Sequoias in Visalia, CA. Each Friday I will blog about technology, inside and outside of the classroom. Let me know if there are other topics you’d like me to cover by leaving a comment or by reaching me through the contact page on my website.
