Connections between statistical thinking and critical thinking: a case study. (English)
Ben-Zvi, Dani (ed.) et al., The teaching and learning of statistics. International perspectives. Cham: Springer (ISBN 978-3-319-23469-4/hbk; 978-3-319-23470-0/ebook). 83-94 (2016).
Summary: Dealing with statistical information requires critically reviewing evidence. Critical thinking consists of components like inductive reasoning, and questioning assertions and hypotheses. Even though statistical thinking and critical thinking appear to have strong links from a theoretical point of view, empirical research about the intersections and potential interrelatedness of these aspects of competence is scarce. Responding to this research need, this chapter aims to identify how abilities in both areas may be interdependent. A preliminary and exploratory qualitative study has been undertaken into thinking processes when working on tasks from both areas. This chapter reports a case study from one of the interviews.
