Update on Intro to Stats course at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

The initial course target at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo is Stat 217 "Introduction to Statistical Concepts and Methods"; we have also identified two other areas and gained faculty and administrative buy in to use the materials in a Calculus course for Business students and in several Architecture courses.

 In Fall 2007 they have been developing baseline measures of the effectiveness of the current course delivery method.  In Winter and Spring they plan on doing the assessment.  Using this as a baseline they will then be able to measure the impact of the changes they will implement next Fall.  In addition they have been collaborating with Marsha Lovett at CMU to ensure they build on the research done at CMU.
