The project aims to design and implement an Adaptive LEArning system for Statistics (ALEAS) that will be used to reduce the gap spotted in Statistics courses. Targets groups of ALEAS are undergraduate university students attending first courses in statistics in several degree programs: from Psychology, to Political Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Primary Education. ALEAS must be intended as an innovative and complementary tool with respect to the traditional courses in Statistics and it will offer personalized learning paths to students, with the purpose to provide them remedial advices to deal with the “statistics anxiety”. The use of real world examples taken from the specific domains aims to motivate the students’ interest and curiosity for Statistics. ALEAS will also represent a useful work tool for teachers because at the end of a course or of a learning session, it will provide statistics about the impact of the adaptive learning system on the learning capability of the class. The system will be experimented and tuned among the undergraduate classes in Statistics of the involved partners’ institutions.
