ab: Summary: The article investigates how 14- to 15- year-olds build informal
conceptions of inferential statistics as they engage in a modelling
process and build their own computer simulations with dynamic
statistical software. This study proposes four primary phases of
informal inferential reasoning for the students in the statistical
modelling and simulation process. Findings show shifts in the
conceptual structures across the four phases and point to the potential
of all of these phases for fostering the development of students’
robust knowledge of the logic of inference when using computer based
simulations to model and investigate statistical questions.
