The November edition of SERJ (Statistics Education Research Journal) is a special edition on the topic of IIR (Informal Inferential Reasoning) under the guest editorship of Dave Pratt (University of London) and Janet Ainley (University of Leicester), both from the United Kingdom. The special edition contains a larger number of papers than usual from a diverse group of authors (and countries):

  1. An introductory paper by the guest editors
  2. A statistician's perspective on IIR by Allan Rossman
  3. "Statistical cognition: towards evidence-based practice in statistics and statistics education" by Ruth Beyth-Marom, Fiona Fiedler and Geoff Cumming
  4. "A framework to support research on informal inferential reasoning" by Andrew Zeiffler, Joan Garfield, Robert Delmas and Chris Reading
  5. "Exploring beginning inference with novice grade 7 students" by Jane Watson
  6. "Developing young students' informal inference skills in data analysis" by Eli Paparistodemou and Maria Meletiou-Mavrotheris
  7. "Local and global thinking in statistical inference" by Dave Pratt, Peter Johnston-Wilder, Janet Ainley and John Mason
  8. "Statistical inference at work: statistical process control as an example" by Arthur Bakker, Phillip Kent, Jan Derry, Richard Noss and Celia Hoyles

This edition is the culmination of a project set up by one of SERJ's previous editors, Iddo Gal. It will provide a very useful and timely analysis of a currently important topic in statistics education.
