Utah Virtual Lab for teaching Science, Methods, and Statistics

Logo for Utah Virtual Lab for teaching Science, Methods, and Statistics
The Utah online Virtual Lab is a JAVA program run dynamically off a database. Instructors author a statistical virtual reality simulating theories and data in a specific research focus area by defining independent, predictor, and dependent variables and the relations among them. Students work in an online virtual environment to discover the principles of this simulated reality: they go to a library, read theoretical overviews and scientific puzzles, and then go to a lab, design a study, collect...

The ANOVA flash can be used to give students intuition about how the F statistic is affected by manipulating variability between and within groups.

I found the virtual lab highly interesting and educational. The scenarios
provided by the lab are similar to what many undergraduates have experienced or
will experience while doing research for professors. The different scenarios
also presented varying degrees of difficulty in which the student or research
assistant had to create a scientific hypothesis and determine which statistical
test to use that was best suited for the material. Directions and procedures for
using this tool are well explained and easy to follow. The application and use
of this tool in academic instruction will be highly beneficial to both students
and professors. Dr. Malloy really has a winner here.
