The ASA/NCTM Joint Committee on the Curriculum in Statistics and Probability and the ASA’s Education Department encourage students and their advisers to participate in its annual Project Competition (written report).

What is a statistical project? A statistical project is the process of answering a research question using statistical techniques and presenting the work in a written report.

Students submit a report about their own statistical project. A statistical project is the process of answering a research question using statistical techniques and presenting the work in a written report. The research question may arise from any field of scientific endeavor, such as athletics, advertising, aerodynamics, or nutrition. A project differs from a statistical poster in that a written report is used to present the findings. This competition is sponsored by the American Statistical Association for the purpose of encouraging students to collect and interpret data to answer a statistical question. The primary focus of the project should therefore be the collection and analysis of data. Any project that does not serve this intent may be disqualified at the discretion of the head judge. See competition website for specific rules and submission criteria.

Teachers and statisticians, whose decisions are final, will judge the reports on the following: Statistical Question: Valid statistical question that is clearly stated, focused, and interesting. Data Collection: Evidence of direct data collection by students. Data were collected in an appropriate manner to answer the statistical question. Raw data are included. Data Display: Includes appropriate, well-labeled, accurate displays (graphs and tables) of the data. Data Analysis: Analysis of the data is accurate, thorough, and appropriate. Conditions are checked correctly for any inference procedures. Conclusion: Conclusion includes a clear answer to the statistical question that is consistent with the data analysis and method of data collection. Reflection on Process: Gives a good overall picture of the project—what went well and what didn't—and includes ideas for further study. Overall Presentation: Attractive, well-organized, well-written project report.
