This webpage is one chapter in an online article about how students learn statistics. Research in the areas of psychology, statistical education, and mathematics education is reviewed. Research results are applied to the teaching of college-level statistics courses. The argument is made that statistics educators need to determine what it is they really want students to learn, to modify their teaching according to suggestions from the research literature, and to use assessment to determine if their teaching is effective and if students are developing statistical understanding and competence.
