I use this project as an end of the unit assessment. Students work in pairs or small groups to design, complete and analyze a sampling study of their choice. Students must determine the best sampling method and sampling size for their study. Data is presented in a table, histogram, and box plot. Students analyze the data in a written report including mean, median, mode, etc.
After students have completed the projects, they evaluate the project of another group. This provides them with even more practice with the skills.
