In the Level 5 and 6 statistics module the students personal
experience is used as part of their assessment work. The
assessment for this module requires the student to produce two
pieces of course work based on their own experiences. They collect
a set of data that interests them. They then use a statistical
technique to interrogate the data.
In the past data has been form rugby scores, breast feeding, the
difference in the cost of living between Poland and the UK and
overseas currency fluctuations. All the students use the same
technique but different data. As well as giving the students the
opportunity to relate their work to their own interests this
approach has reduced plagiarism.
