Studying the Evolution of Students ́ Thinking about Variation through Use of the Transformative and Conjecture-driven Research Design

Abstract

The paper describes how the transformative and conjecture-driven research design, a research model that utilizes both theory and common core classroom conditions, was employed in a study examining introductory statistics students’ understanding of the concept of variation. It describes how the approach was linked to classroom practice and was employed in terms of research design, data collection, and data analysis. The many possibilities that the design offered for systematically researching students’ conceptual change are contrasted to the limitations of the prevailing methodology employed by researchers examining conceptions of data and chance.
