Undergraduate instruction in experimental design and data analysis is often left to elective courses or is given as a fraction of lab courses. Furthermore, some engineering students find concepts of statistics difficult to grasp when these concepts are divorced from hands-on experiments. However, real world experiments can be time consuming and costly, and with such limitations a thorough demonstration of statistical concepts in a classroom setting is problematic.
These web tools allow students to develop an insight and intuition into statistically sound methods and results, and at minimal investment of student's time and department resources. Students using these online tools report significantly more satisfaction with their training, and confidence in their abilities to properly apply statistics to chemical engineering problems.
