dc.description.abstractIn a previous report, Neumann (2010) described the use of interactive computer-based simulations in the assessment of statistical concepts. This assessment approach combined declarative knowledge of statistics with experiences in interacting with computer-based simulations. The aim of the present study was to conduct a systematic evaluation of the approach. A stratified random sample of students (n = 38) was selected and participated in an interview to provide qualitative data that was coded into themes. The students reported that the assessment approach improved their understanding of statistics and its practical application, gave them a way to practice statistics, motivated them to complete it, was interesting and engaging, and gave a visual aid to learning. Students also commented on the immediate feedback, the unique nature of the assessment, and the technological requirements involved. The results suggest that the use of computer-based interactive simulations in assessment can be a positive addition to assessment practices in a university statistics course.
