Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 10, Number 1 (Spring 2004)
Does your school offer/require some sort of "capstone", honors or independent project of senior majors? Need some ideas for topics to suggest to students who are interested in pursuing a statistics related thesis? Want an outlet for publicizing the work your seniors have done? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, you might want to check a new website set up to disseminate abstracts of senior projects in statistics at http://it.stlawu.edu/~rlock/ussa. The site is starting with abstracts from St. Lawrence University and Westminster College (thanks to Carolyn Cuff), but its success depends on the willingness of statistics instructors at other schools to submit abstracts and/or project topics. The current setup has a main page with links to schools, lists of student names and project titles within each school and links from each student to the full abstract (including e-mail contact for the advisor for more info if needed). Contributions (student name, title and abstract - or a link to a departmental webpage with this information) and comments should be sent to Robin Lock at St. Lawrence University (firstname.lastname@example.org).
