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