In one study, Groth and Bergner (2005) examined the use of metaphors as a way to reveal student understanding, and were disappointed to note that students (preservice teachers) who have completed a course in statistics have limited and often incorrect notions of the idea of sample. Leavy (2006) examined preservice teachers’ reasoning about the concept of distribution. In her one group pretest–posttest design that took place during a semester-long mathematics methods course, participants worked in small groups on two statistical inquiry projects requiring the collection, representation, analysis, and reporting of data involving comparing distributions.
