Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 2, Number 1 (Winter 1996)

W. Robert "Bob" Stephenson of the Department of Statistics at Iowa State University will be the recipient of the 1995 Statistical Education Section Best Contributed Paper Award. Dr. Stephenson will receive a plaque at the Section Business Meeting in Chicago next August.

Thirty-five contributed papers were presented in the Section at the Orlando meetings. Audience members were given a form to evaluate the speakers (on a scale of 4=excellent to 1=poor) on several aspects of their presentations. To be eligible for an award, a speaker must be evaluated by at least 15 people. Among those eligible, Stephenson received the highest overall rating with an average score of 3.68 for his talk, entitled "Statistics at a Distance."

The Best Contributed Paper Award was established by the Section over 10 years ago to encourage better contributed paper presentations. The Statistics Education Section is grateful to all those who presented, as well as to those who took the time to evaluate the talks. Questions or comments about the award may be addressed to
