    Abstract

    Research at the Open University has investigated students’ learning of statistical concepts and how information technology can be effectively used to support this process. Previous empirical work has looked at psychology students’ misconceptions relating to correlation and how computer‐based learning environments can be used to address these. This paper reports on the findings from a qualitative study that investigated students’ learning collaboratively from a multimedia application called ActivStats.
