ab: A key element in developing ideas associated with statistical inference
involves developing concepts of sampling. The characteristics of
studentsâ€™ constructions of the concept of sample were studied through
interviews of 62 students in Grades 3, 6, and 9. Six categories of
understanding were identified; these categories should prove useful to
teachers who want to help students develop appropriate understandings
of how a sample must represent a population. (orig.)
